    Hi, got a slight problem or possibly a big problem, i have got a 15" i7 Macbook pro but i seem to be having problems with the display as you can see in the picture attached that the screen keeps going 'blocky'.

    Any idea what this could be...... any help would be appreciated

    Um... take it to the Apple Store and get it replaced.

    It could be the automatic graphics switching that's taking place. It's still in its infancy and apparently still buggy. Switch to the dedicated nVidia graphics card only, and use your MacBook Pro for as long as you can until you reach the deadline for returning the MBP. If you don't observe this graphics corruption anymore, you've found the problem. Even then, it's not worth exchanging for another MBP as it's likely to have the same underlying issue.

    Yeah that's why I'm waiting too. I really think it's a software and driver issue. If Apple has an update and it doesn't fix it I would go ahead and send it to Apple.
