    So, my new rMBP just crashed! Got the grey screen that said there was a problem and I should press a button to restart.

    I copied the crash report details in a .txt file... I can't really read it effectively though... Would I be able to post it here for you guys to look at if you have the time, or do you think it would contain any private/confidential info?

    Have you unplugged everything on the restart. My mac pro used to stop on restart sometime due to USB device being connected?

    It just happened while I was browsing. Pressed a button and it restarted immediately. Had my external USB drive plugged in when it happened. Didn't unplug it before I pressed the button to restart... But everything seems to be fine now... Just wondering wtf happened!

    It seems like Chrome is crashing all the 2012 models, i.e. Macbook Air, Pro, Pro Retina

    rMBP crashing

    I changed the logic board after a visit to Genius Bar - still crashing with the grey screen - now I unchecked the "Automatic Graphic Switching" in the Energy Saver pane. Fingers crossed - no crashes thus far - been running full screen HD clips on Chrome.;)
