    i smell a recall, in atleast the ones with the 330m with auto graphic switching. i got the 15 inch i7 and my graphics card keeps locking up, not the actually computer itself. Went to the apple store, took my laptop and diagnosed it. Guy calls me hes like yeah theres a problem, probably the logic board, dont have that part, heres a brand new laptop. I get home, play some stacraft 2 beta, exit and bam locks up. Then i watch entourage with vlc, bam locks up again. (the guy actually transferred all my stuff to the new laptop, i verified that its a new laptop, difference serial number). So either expect a software update within the next few days or a major recall.

    It might just be a small batch of them, rather than all of them.

    thing is, i had one of the first ones made, i went on the first day they came out. Then i got a replacement with this brand new one today. So basicly every laptop with the 330m that was sold thus far is probably affected. I noticed this didn't happen before (as in it did not happen when i first got my laptop, it happened over time), though, so maybe there is hope yet?

    I highly doubt that there will be a recall. A software update is very plausible.
