    This happened twice today on my late 2010 MB Air (13"/2.13/4GB). The same thing also happened on my iMac once today. This was the first time it happened with my iMac since I bought it two years ago. I was just simply browsing the Internet, doing email, and word processing.

    The two most recent changes I made to both of them were installing dropbox and adding clicktoflash extension. Any idea what may have caused this? :confused: I'd appreciate your answers and advices.

    that's a kernel panic, although I am not sure what could have caused that.

    Thank you for your answer. I have to admit that I'm clueless about this kind of stuffs.

    Is it something serious? Should I take it back for an exchange or return? My 2-week period will be expired tomorrow.

    If it starts to do it all the time, then go for the exchange. One kernel panic doesn't mean anything :)

    I just checked logged files. It happened twice on the first day I got the machine (10/26) and twice today.

    That happened to my 11" also. I had it happen to me 8 times within 10 days, so I made an appointment at my local apple store and they swapped it out for me with a new one.
