Proud new owners of Apple's latest laptop are being plagued by possible overheating problems. The picture (below) shows what is happening to some new owners of Apple's MacBook Pro 17" model.
The MacBook Pro 17" was announced at MacWorld 2009 and has only recently begun shipping to consumers. The potential problem may be that the fan is not running at high speeds when necessary which would cause the GPU to overheat and produce the artifacts that are being seen.
NVIDIA and Apple are aware of the problem and should hopefully have a resolution to the matter soon. Until then there is not much that can be done to remedy the situation.
