    Hi,
    i Have bought 3 days ago on the Apple Store Online the new MacBook Pro 13"...
    I have made for precautions, the Apple Hardware Test, and it has turned out this error: 4MEM/2/40000000: 0xa9F79398
    What means? it is a serious problem? what advised to make?
    Sorry for the english but i'm Italian :)

    It looks like bad memory. I'd call Apple to have the part replaced.

    Thank you so much for the fast answer! Therefore it is the ram defective?
    Calling the Apple they can only replace the ram to me?

    I would assume so. RAM is considered user-replaceable, so Apple may just send you a stick of RAM.

    Wow, nice. Sounds like they DOAed the unit as a courtesy; I wouldn't want to take the bottom case off a ~ 3 day old MacBook Pro either, honestly, and I have hardware certification...
