A) I have a cluster of darkened pixels on my screen B) I have photographic evidence of my laptop messing up under strain due to the faulty GPUs C) The paint is coming off the arm rest area of the laptop. It is 9months old, early 2008 penryn 2.5 laptop and I'm thinking these probs alone are nothing but together are highly annoying. Especially the paint issue. Just wondering if anyone has had similar problems and managed to get them resolved. Thanks guys Ps I have apple care.
