Hi I've got a 17" MacBook Pro (early 2011, and I'm running 10.6.8). I've got a problem with it, and I'm interested in whether anyone else has experience this... On average about once a week, I get a blue screen of death. There seems to be no way out from this, except to hold down the power button for a few seconds and wait for the machine to switch off. The failure tends to happen at the end of the day, when I'm quitting applications, getting ready for a shutdown. I've got AppleCare, but they're useless on this one. Anyone else experience this? Bruno.
