    I have the new, 2.4ghz and it has frozen on me more than a few times, its not pandemic but I want to get it fixed if it shouldn't be doing this. The times it froze were during playing CIV IV and Age of Empires III with full graphics on both. Shouldn't this laptop be able to handle full graphics? It also froze while processing a movie on imovie hd and doing a couple other apps. When it freezes is there any option but to reboot? And should this be happening at all?

    It's probably fine. My 2.2 used to freeze for about 20seconds while playing Doom 3 and crash when playing COD 2. I updated both games and now they're playing just fine. Try patching the games first. According to Aspyr, their games were not made to play on the new MBPs (video cards).
