Today I bought a Macbook, the black one. I am coming off about 4 macs in a row that I have never had problems with (knock on wood). This one, I open the box and start transferring files through the setup utility and it shuts down in the middle. No big deal right? I restart and start over, no problems. I get to the main screen and go to software update. Its taking FOREVER, so I restart again. I know, stupid. Then when I restart I get vertical lines across the screen, similar to when a tv station goes off the air, only in black and white. I restart again and everything seems ok. What the heck is going on? I have never had that stuff happen before. Should I just hope for the best? Has anyone seen this before? Thanks for any help.
