    My MBP is only ~4months old and I noticed that sometimes a round patch of displayed text is displayed bold. If I select the text, the font site is back to normal. I see this most in browsers and Dreamweaver CS3.

    Has this happened to anyone else? The next time it happens I will post a screen shot.

    My first guess would be that it's signs of the GPU failing

    If that is the case, how best to document and address with Apple? Is there a check I can run?

    Please post a screenshot and take a picture of the screen.

    Jumping to worst case are we?

    Well if it only happens on and off, I don't think there's too much Apple will do since it doesn't meet the criteria listed here, but if it does get worse Apple will replace it.

    I've been getting fuzzy text in FireFox on my MacBook recently.

    like I said, my first guess, but I'm far from being an expert, I'm sure others could diagnose the problem better than I

    EDIT-but I don't think that's exactly the worse case scenario since Apple would replace it and it's a known defect, but do you have any problems while playing videos or games (if you do game)?
