    Has anyone else noticed this on their MBP display? is it normal? When I scroll down, there is a line across my screen. It appears in different areas at different times. It is not a white line per say, but an area that appears to be where information stops and starts as you go up or down. Hard to explain.....It seems to do it most on web sites that have alot of information on one page (text graphics flash, etc)
    anyone? :confused:

    I get this too on my white iMac. I think the graphic card is failing. If I turn the fan speeds up a little from the default levels using SMC fan control, they go away. I am not sure what to do. I have Apple Care, and turning the fans up only masks the problem. I wouldn't feel right selling it knowing it does this. So I guess I have to let Apple fix it, or hope since its an 2006 model, maybe they don't have the parts and they replace it with a more modern aluminum one.
