New MacBook Pro 2011 Has Crash Issues

Users of the new batch of MacBook Pros, which were introduced in the market last February, reported that their new mac-tops have serious crash issues. The computers tend to freeze because their Radeon GPUs is overheated and their CPUs are overloaded.

The new GPU is supposed to take care of graphics if it is too much for the CPU to process, but with two components working they become warmer than usual. Once the MacBook Pro freezes, a hard reboot (and a prayer that your unsaved files can be retrieved) is the only solution.

Representatives of Apple claim it is a mere software problem, which can be fixed with the 10.6.7 update.
