    Hello,

    I am going to buy a used MacBook Pro 4,1. I am wondering, do this model have bugs with faulty 8600GT, or only MacBook Pro 3,1?

    Thanks!

    Yes, it does have 8600M GT. However, MacBook Pro 4,1 came in February 28th in 2008 and Apple extended the warranty from 1 year to 3 years in 8600M GTs if the failure is GPU related so it's still covered for at least 6 months

    The warranty for 8600gt GPU related problems has been extended to 4 years now. From the Apple page linked above:

    Every single 8600GT out there has the "bug", hence the warranty extension by Apple.
