    Hi Guys,


    Been experiencing some extremely frustrating things with my new MBP lately.
    As soon as I got it I noticed that it wasn't anywhere near as fast as it should be, But can't find any hardware at fault after doing 24 hours of hardware tests.
    My sister has a 2.4 i5 that blows this out of the water and my 1.25 PBG4 keeps up with this thing most of the time.
    Tonight I've just come home to start using my machine, Opened it up and the windowserver had crashed at some point as it looked like my machine had just been logged in.
    Thought this was odd but continued on.
    So far I've had the windowserver job crash 5 times within 20min.
    System will lockup, Screen come up with bars similar to logic board failure.
    Machine will then proceed to redo the log in process with no apps running etc.
    As you can understand this is extremely frustrating as I loose my work every time.

    Also to note, I've been servicing / Working with apple hardware for about 10 years so I've already tried everything I can think of without RMAing it yet, Except a format. :mad:

    Anywho log dump as follows.

    I have had similar issues with my semi-new i7 MBP. I believe WindowServer is the background application that allows you to run multiple apps at a time. Thats what my local Genius Bar told me... It also sounds like your experiencing Kernel Panics, this is most likely logic board failure. If I were you, I'd take it in to the genius bar. Usually they do a repair and that should fix it, if you bring it in three times for the same issue they give you a new one. OR if your still under the 14 day return, I would return it. BTW Theres a high likely of new generation of MBP's within the next two months soo....

    Yeah it seems pretty sus.
    To give you an idea on frequency. It's happened 5 times since posting that first post.
    Even managed to get a video of it on the iPhone.
    I've done a full restart, Hopefully that will hold it out till I can get it looked at.
    I'll try a format first see if that helps. It's only about 2 months old.
