    I have a late 2008 uMBP 15 inch and in safari, regardless of using the integrated graphics card or the higher end card, when I press apple t for a new tab the computer hangs for at least 10 seconds then once it finally loads the top sites page it appears all scrambles for a second, then it works normally.

    My second problem is that my hinge is very loose. I can't hold the laptop at 45 degree angle without the screen falling down and closing. Will apple fix this?

    Thanks!

    The hinge is normal. All of the current uMBPs have that. As for the hanging, try the basics, repair permissions, verify and repair disk etc.

    All of the 15" uMBP's seem to have that. The 13" uMBP's do not though.
