    Tonight I got this error ( see screenshot) for the second time in the last month or so. Is it something I should be worried about?

    My MBP is a early 2011 13" I7 model bought new in late March.

    It's called a Kernel Panic. Have you installed anything new on your computer like new RAM? If not, do you have all updates installed? What version of OS X are you running?

    Also, this may help you out a bit. http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/kernelpanics.html

    Thanks for the quick responses, nothing new installed hardware... or software for that matter.

    Running Lion 10.7.2. There is an EFI Update to version 2.3 that I can do, otherwise all other updates are already installed.

    Thanks for the info on the error. I'll research it more as it doesn't make much sense to me. ;)

    Try downloading the EFI update and follow the instructions to install it. It may be a little different than Software Update installations. If you keep seeing kernel panics, give Apple a call or visit the Apple Store to see if they can help.

    Thanks Mark. I'll do that.

    Guess I'd better make sure to get a good back up just in case ;)
