    Just got my 13" i5 MBP today, and within a couple of hours of using it I got a message telling me that my computer needs to be restarted in several languages. Apparently this is a kernel panic? I searched MRoogle and saw that people usually recommend doing an Apple Hardware test, which I did, and...nothing. Why would my MBP be crashing right out of the box? What are the chances that I have a lemon?

    (More info: I was testing out Handbrake encoding speeds when it happened. Also had music streaming to an AirPort Express through iTunes, and was surfing the web. Is that honestly enough to cause a 2011 MBP to crash?)

    Thanks for your reply. I did download and install all of the updates that popped up when I was first setting up the MacBook, including 10.6.7.

    I've been using it all day today though with no problems, so there's probably nothing major wrong with it? Maybe it was just a fluke.
