    This expensive hunk of crap I bought isn't working. Besides the godawful yellow screen,I experience random freezes where the mouse disappears and have had to do multiple force-reboots in my short month and a half of owning this.

    I am trying to watch Netflix and even that won't work now. The site loads fine but when i click on something to watch it doesn't load. I have already tried to completely delete and re-install Silverlight and did not do anything.

    I didn't know Macs were so crappy.

    Really? If you have a screen you don't like just exchange it!

    How about some specs?

    Swap it out for the screen (or send it for repair if you are beyond the swap out period).

    That will fix the reboot/crash problem (if you swap it out).

    What error does Netflix give? Is your internet connection good?

    Not sure on your general issues, but as for Netflix...

    I have found that the most recent version of Silverlight is a classic Microsoft bag full of bugs and poor quality control... and they're not fixing it.

    I run the prior release (4.060310) and have found it to be stable.
