    the title says it all... I started using google earth (latest build) and locked the machine up twice in 15 minutes. The entire machine was frozen requiring a shutdown (hold power button for 5 seconds).

    Anyone else have similar issues?

    I haven't encountered that in OS X or Windows.

    What else were you running? Have you tried it in a fresh user account? Was your machine running hot? :)

    first time, firefox was open, second time, just google earth. The machine was running fairly hot, but its been hotter before without issue. I'll have to try a different account.
