    so pissed off you cant even imagine!!! Ive got my new Mac Book Pro 15" last week, its the new model http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/, with a high resolution display..
    So working as usual today, the screen just went crazy.. flickering and eventually turned black.

    Seems to be a hardware problem, since the flickering is not just in Macos, but also before booting...

    Any ideas? Sooo annoying I dont know where to start, this is supposed to be a quality laptop.. never happened before, and I didnt even use it at work yet, just home... so I didnt drop it or anything.

    I guess I have to return it or get it repaired, this really sux.

    Wrong Forum - This is for the Mac Pro Desktop

    However you can just VNC to it from another computer and collect your files
