    My macbookpro in the middle of my work will flash up that I need to restart the computer by holing down the power button. It happens usually while working on my photography and listening to itunes. Does anyone know why it does this or have any solutions. Thank you

    The only thing I can suggest is resetting the PRAM on your machine, but beyond that you will have to give Apple a ring. At least you are within your 1 year guarantee.

    That's not normal. Are you using third party RAM? What sort of third party hardware do you have connected? :)
