Picked up a Space Grey MacBook in November - today it boots way slower than normal and I get this 'gorgeous' display error.

Three reboots seems to have fixed it for now but has anyone else had this problem? Pretty disappointing to see this already..

This appears to be like the one we had in the lab at work. Apple replaced it.

Yeah it's not a good sign - seems like a hardware failure linked to the GPU portion of the logic board. Think I'll see what happens over the next few weeks as the whole Apple Store appointment malarky annoys me :)
