    Just a few minutes ago my Macbook's screen started to flicker a little bit, almost as if I was pressing the dim/brighter buttons really fast. It only lasted for a few seconds. Should I be worried or just pretend it never happened?

    Nothing like that has ever happened to my MB, but if it happens again, call Apple:) ;)

    it's a known issue, it needs to to be sent in for repair. They don't know what the problem is. my bf's macbook has the same issue and it has gotten worse over the past 2 weeks. it's to the point right now where it is unbearable to use.

    really? dang...my macbook is MESSED up. it's been having random shutdowns and the palm rest is turning orange. i was hoping to wait until thanksgiving break to get it repaired since i won't need it for class, but if this flickering gets worse in the next couple weeks i may have to turn it in early cuz i know i won't be able to stand it. the macbook is my first mac, and i happen to be on my third macbook....not too impressed....I just happen to have insanely bad luck, huh? :eek:

    well, there was a guy who posted in this forum saying his MB had been sent in for repair for 5 times.

    don't they give you a new one after the third repair?
