I hope these kernel panics are localized to my retina macbook pro

    With a fresh Lion install, I've had quite a few panics. I'm going to chalk it up to funky drivers and wait a couple of weeks before taking it back to Apple.

    Useless post. You didn't even tell us what you were doing when your OS crashes. If you're using Chrome, it's a known bug and Google is working on it.

    Post the info within the KP. Perhaps some of us can determine the cause.

    I've only seen the anecdotal evidence. I have chrome and canary installed. It's crashed when I've been using it (writing code or surfing or using twitter), and it's also crashed when I haven't been doing anything with it.

    Here's a sample crash for you: https://gist.github.com/2945905. They all pretty much look just like this one.

    looks like the panic was caused by the Nvidia chip.

    try turning auto graphics switching off and see if that fixes the issue.

    I have not had any problems with mine, but I use Safari.

    I've gotten 5 kernal panics on my RMBP while using Chrome Canary as well.

    It doesn't fix the issue. It just makes it unnoticeable.

    I've just moved back to Safari to see if it is any better. This hurts, I really like chrome :)

    You can move back when the bugs are fixed. Unless you start to really like Safari lol

    get the kernel source code and compile for your machine.
