    I own a 2.4GHZ MBP that's barely a month old. It's never had any kernal panics or ANYTHING, and it's been a great computer. Today I was a bit worried though, because in Final Cut I was applying a filter (de-interlace) on a short clip, and while rendering, a very loud beep came from my computer, and I practically crapped myself. I didn't think I should even post here because my computer is absolutely fine now, but I want to take every precaution. ( i have applecare too if this actually is a problem ).

    Boot from the OSX discs holding D and run the diagnostic tests. They'll take a while so feel free to run them overnight. :)

    Mad jew is diagonstic check on that MBP. You wouldn't want to have it fail down the road. Usually a long beep when you boot the computer up means that there is a fault with the RAM on the computer....or if there is a firmware update that you just downloaded.....but regardless, those sounds only happen when you boot up.
