    what do you make of this?

    a few flickers a few weeks back and now this.

    I've read elsewhere:

    Notebook is early 08 and so over 3 years and thus out of extended warranty.
    would Apple fix this after that amount of time if indeed this is the fault?

    (sorry about the pix, for some reason uploading the photos inverts them)
