Everything went smooth. The only weird thing is: My 2012 stock MBA now has allocated 512MB VRAM for the HD4000, prior to the update it was 384MB. Scrolling in Safari seems smoother, but the rest looks the same for now. Have to test it a bit more.

"update includes graphics performance and reliability enhancements"

Yep, increasing from 384MB to 512MB VRAM would help with performance.

Is there a way to dynamically check current VRAM usage, not just its total allocation?

I think you can check the VRAM usage with iStat Menus.

My 2012 stock mbp with 8gb ram did the same thing, except the other way around: I only have 384mb now.
How is this an improvement?

Thanks, Timisorean. iStat Menus can monitor VRAM usage but isn't worth $16 to me, and atMonitor (free) also does/did but not the latest version that supports ML. More info:

Doesn't solve either of my problems: (1) external USB 3 hard drives, and (2) washed out HDMI output.

It is causing problems on my box, too. After quite a bit of time with Apple Care on the phone, we were able to repair the keychain access issues that were freezing my Mail.app ... I think Apple may have realized there may be issues with the update: they've pulled it from their site. If you click on the link to their site, and then click on the download button for the update, it goes to a null page.

It's still available:

But if you click "Download" on that page as of now, it goes to a 404 page with error that "We're sorry. We can't find the article you're looking for. Please return to the Apple Support homepage."

Running 10.8.0 GM on my Retina and this update does NOT appear on sys update. This is the matter: there is a big difference in what MacUpdate and Apple state on their sites on sys requirements for the update.
MacUpdate states 10.7.4 OR LATER
Apple states 10.7.4

Which one is correct?

As I never had problem using USB devices and sys update does not show anything I will not apply this update :-)

If you're having a rant against MacUpdate and haven't even installed the software, why did you rate the software only 2 stars?

Since 10.8 hasn't been released yet, the information by MacUpdate is correct.

Worked like a charm. Before the update, my USB devices were acting a little funny but now is not the case.

Didn't fix my issue of external 3TB HD that requires powered USB hub to connect to MBA. Direct connection of HD to MBA results in Finder hang and drive repeatedly powering up/down and unable to be used. Connected through powered hub, all is sweet. So much for USB 3 on MBA...

Are you serious? Are you saying that you expect there to be enough power through a USB port to power you external hard drive without using a powered hub?

The external HD -IS- powered by mains power and does not work when connected directly to the USB3 connection on my Air. I have to use the powered hub to be able to use the external HDD using USB3.

See the thread at https://discussions.apple.com/message/18820738#18820738 for others' experiences - all v similar.
