if that happens on a clean install, before migrating/importing/adding software - I'd agree with you, that there's a definite problem... a number of graphics problems reported here don't seem to always be fixed by the 'first' logicboard replacement.

Thanks for that ...
This MacBook Pro is still under warranty and I am worried that the replacement motherboards were in no more "resolved" than the original faulty ones.
I have never seen anything like this.
The Genius was not able tell me what it might be at all, nor why mostly in Safari.
Safari spins beachballs a lot and still crashes.

That's not typical of graphics problems, and although some users (mostly a few years ago, from what I read) have found display oddness only in Safari - again, that isn't usual on newer models, so far as I've seen reports here.
But - clean install, before migrating/importing/adding software - it's hard to see it being other than apple's problem.
If you get crashes or kernel panics - do paste the reports here, they sometimes give useful clues.

Here is another example ... this one stuck for long enough to screengrab.
Do people also find that iTunes skips when you refresh Safari pages?
Sorry to ask dumb questions but this is all new and I am trying to work out whether I have a bad motherboard or not. I'd appreciate to know if anyone else is experiencing this.
The local genius suggested it was "normal" but I have not seen it anywhere else at all. This generally happens when I open a new tab or 'top sites'. The scrabble is one of the other, or older, tabs.

Just for the record ...
Following another unrelated problem, the MBP had a motherboard replacement after which I reinstalled and upgraded the software, checked/repaired disk ... and it stil does it. Two motherboard replacements, one RAM replacement and numerous reinstallation including a nuke and pave and the fault still exists, so it must be OS/driver related.
I see there are a few more reports or grumbling around here and the internet about it these days.
