    I have a 2011 Macbook Pro 17 with the 6750m. I noticed some patches of white spots on the lower right. I have also noticed the screen is blurry. Sometimes, the screen will become blue. These are RadeonGate symptoms. The thing is, that I just got the computer back from being repaired by Apple only a month ago. Supposedly, Apple replaced the logic board due to a faulty gpu. Now, it is doing the same thing. I called Apple and was told to bring it in again for service under the 90 days warranty.

    Once it is repaired again, should I just keep using it or sell it? Will Apple replace the computer if it happens again?

    I'd get it fixed and sell it.

    You've got a 90 day warranty on the repair. Normally they'll just replace the part that failed, but sometimes they'll replace the computer after a repeated hardware failure.

    Even if I don't have Applecare and paid out of pocket for the repair.

    I just upgraded to 16GB RAM and threw in a 512GB SSD. I'll just get it repaired and sell it. Thank you.

    Before you sell it though, you should tell possible buyers of its repair history and inform them about Radeongate.
