    This thread might help you, since the person is experiencing the same kernel panic, it seems. http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1869169&tstart=0

    Resetting the nvram worked for about a half hour or so then said i needed to shut down..the weird thing about it is it doesnt always occur during the boot. Sometime it will say i need to restart as soon as it boots the OS and other times it will work fine for an hour or so.

    On that forum they are suggesting the memory or airport could have been dislodged. I know for this version both of those items are built in but i am testing turning the airport off anyway. Hopefully it isnt anything else thats been set out of place because i would rather not open the laptop.

    Alright, but even if it somehow works with airport turned off, I'd still strongly advise bringing it in to an apple store and having them figure it out, especially before you resort to any radical measures which could nullify your warranty or weaken your case if you screw it up, like opening it up, as you mentioned.
