Hello from Rome, i got this mbp 17" i7 8gbram 5 weeks ago from Apple (Roma Est). http://www.apple.com/it/retail/romaest/ the notebook is in the apple service now. They tried to reset SMC and nothing. It suddenly turned off in the middle of a render, and never started again. Is it normal for a mbp to be that unstable? could it be possible that they're selling refurbished products under brand new prices ? and last, if you're a designer who uses the machine in a heavy way (3d renders, motion graphics) what's your experience? thanks and sorry for my second-hand english. notoro.
