    Has anyone had issues after the recent OS X Update?

    My machine has been completely crippled, its un-useable now. Wireless card just drops out and stops working every half an hour or so, and doesn't come back up at all after sleep.

    Music and Videos just jam and skip every time i play them, as-if the hard drive is dying, but it doesn't sound like it is.

    Machine is generally sluggish.

    Its hugely annoying, I'm in the middle of a lot of work, and my machine is pretty much un-useable right now. Had to switch to using my Bootcamp partition for everything...

    And if i spend all the time restoring from the Restore Partition, that auto does the updates when it installs and i'm going to be stuck in the same place.

    May just take it to the Apple store and see what they say, May be able to roll me in a version of Lion without the recent update.

    If you can get the original Lion installer (10.7.0), *cough cough* torrent, you already own the software so it's not a big deal, then you can grab the 10.7.3 update from the Apple Support website. Alternatively, you could get the 10.7.5 beta and see if that does anything for ya.

    I guess i could get a copy of the OG installer, far to much hassle though. A $1500 machine should wipe my ass....

    Well, I suppose it should had you bought an ass-wiping machine. Personally, I would not want my mbp to smell like poo.

    I don't know if you wanted specific help, or were just commenting, but is there a pattern to the problems? I had some brief problems with DNS after the update. Not even sure it was related, but that can cause fairly widespread problems since so many applications access the internet.

    Price has nothing to do with it. What a crude remark.

    Crude Remark? You pay 1500 for a simple computer, I've had more issues with it than any other machine, All hardware the same, its all 'carp' and its going to fail at some point.

    Whatever, Took it into the Apple store today, having its Logic Board replaced. Just lame, because I'm now out a computer, thus can't get any work done until i get it back.
