Apple MacBook Pro laptops with Sandy Bridge freezing under heavy loads

Posted on Monday, March 21 2011 @ 21:09:16 CET by

Late last year MacBook Air buyers complained about crashes and display issues, and now The Tech Report writes that owners of Apple's latest Sandy Bridge based MacBook Pro systems are suffering from freezes under heavy system loads:
Shelling out extra cash for Apple gear often gets you better-built products, but it's no safeguard from ugly kinks. If you've checked Apple's support forums lately, you'll know why. A 43-page discussion thread suggests 2011 MacBook Pro notebooks with Sandy Bridge processors and Radeon HD discrete graphics are freezing under heavy loads.


This thread has gotten long enough that there's now a "MBP-Freeze" wiki page detailing common symptoms, possible fixes, and particularly incriminating user reports. One of those reports is from someone who alleges that "3 brand spanking new" MacBook Pro systems he tested all failed in under four minutes. Another claims to have reproduced the problem on all of the new machines at his local Apple Store.
