    Hey folks, I have a problem.

    I bought a macbook about 3 weeks ago, when playing flash games or doing anything cpu/graphic intensive (iMovie), I've noticed this line flicker in the bottom right corner of the screen (near where the dock ends).

    Thinking I had a hardware issue, I took my macbook to the genius bar, and they offered to give me a brand new one.

    I tested the new one, and it has the exact same problem! I even walked into the apple store today and tested a macbook and saw the same thing there.

    My thinking now is that this is a software issue. Could it be a problem with the GMA X3100 drivers? I keep hearing they are bad drivers..

    Two reason this could be happening. A. Graphics driver issue B. Heat

    I would put my money on the driver since the current x3100 drivers aren't very optimized. I wouldn't worry about it right now. I believe a new driver release is coming and should resolve the issue you are experiencing.
