    So I have been using Macs for 4 years now and have never seen the kernal panic screen before until yesterday ("You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power button until it turns off, then press the Power button again."). I did what it said and the computer restarted fine and I haven't had any issues, but I am going to Italy for a month in 5 days and absolutely can't afford for my computer to die on me while I'm over there. Even though nothing else has happened, I worry that this could be a precursor to some sort of breakdown with the hardware I have a 6 month old Macbook Pro, should I be worried?

    When is the next time you expect cosmic rays to hit your computer?

    I do not understand what warrants this level of concern regardless.

    Well I did some searching on google and saw a lot of people reporting this in conjunction with hardware issues.

    No, I said I've been using a Mac for 4 years, but my current MBP is 6 months old.

    Did you even read the first post?

    My hackintosh gets a kernel panic everytime I unplug it. I just reboot and it's good to go.

    Why do I need someone to tell me again when the OP already clarified it to me like 4 hours ago?

    It's fun to pick on people who answere questions before reading and comprehending the actual question.
