Just today a friend using Final Cut Pro X on a MacBook Pro running on mountain lion and fried his motherboard. Apple are not recplaceing it because it is 6 months out of warranty! Has it happened to anyone else but also beware if upgrading.

Have you tried contacting the genious bar at an apple store or speak to the manager.

How do you know it was FCPX? Perhaps there was another defect or cause.

Bummer on it dying though

My work computer died using excel - does that mean excel cooks the motherboard?
