So, my trusty MacBook Pro began to succumb to the graphic card issue - random restarts and kernel panics with mine. Everything stayed ok if I didn't push the envelope with graphic extensive stuff, but that's pretty hard to do being an audio engineer, musician, and music education graduate student three weeks from graduation utilizing various DAWs, Microsoft Office, many safari tabs opened and the like. It's now at the Apple Store for a logic board replacement under the Extension Program. Is there anyone that is still using their Early or Late 2011 MBP after a logic board replacement with this new program? How is your machine faring? I still love my '11 MBP and truthfully have no plans to replace it yet (the rMBP's are dreamy, but I spent saved money during undergrad on this thing so I'm getting more than four years of use out of it). I hope I don't have to go through any subsequent repairs after this one!
