Ok, so until recently I had a mid 2009 13" unibody 2.53GHz pro. In the last year or so I had a lot of issues with it kernel panicing under heavy load, when shutting down, or simply quitting some applications. I took it to Apple numerous times, each time they ran tests, wiped the system and library folders, then came a clean install, and the last time they offered to replace the Hard Drive for £250(!). I figured that seeing as my dad needed a new laptop I may as well treat myself and give my old one to him as he's not a heavy user. So that brings us to my current problem. My brand new 15" 2.2 i7 is doing the same thing. Except the kernel panics happen randomly. I haven't even had a chance to run the computer under any heavy load yet, and already it's done it to me 3 times this week. All three of these have been when just browsing the internet. I know if I take it to Apple I'm just going to get the same crap as last time, so does anybody have any sensible ideas as to what could be causing it? I haven't installed any pirated software, and when I check the bug report the only thing that I can decipher is something relating to Google Chrome, but I'm pretty sure that can't be the issue? It's driving me nuts, I just want to enjoy my brand new extortionately priced machine . TL;DR: Old laptop kept kernel panicing, bought new one, does it too.
