    I am having a similar issue, my Macbook Pro 15 2012 freezes on occation while doing just about any task. From heavy intensive work with Pro Tools recording and editing to iChating with friends. Very random. I am in Jamaica and there are any Apple stores here so I would have to ship the machine back to the U.S. So I am hoping this is a Lion bug of some sorts that can be fixed with an update.

    Sure you can get the new Moutain Lion version of OS X for free from Apple as the owner of the newest Mac computers. Get that version and install it and post back how it works.

    I tried mountain lion as a last resort, had the exact same issues. I even tried formating and restoring everything. It seems to be a problem with the gpu of some of the newest mid 2012 macbooks. I also dont see any kernel panic messages of some sort in the logs at the point of freezing.

    Let me know what Apple find. Didn't realize so many people having this problem. So much spent on a laptop that Freeze, what a disgrace.

    Airplai we in the same boat. In Jamaica as well with the same computer, same problem.. There are two Apple certified stores in Kingston that are responsible for repairing Apple products. They directed me to them, but I refuse to take it to them, I don't see the sense of taking a brand new computer for repair. I requested a replacement and then send back the first one. Will be receiving the new one wednesday through MailPac. I've been reading around and was wondering if the x-ray scanning through the airports could interfere with the operation of the system, most of who are experiencing the problem seems to be outside of the United States.

    I just install Mountain Lion a few hours ago and so far no freeze. Will continue working on different apps this week and see if it will freeze/crash.

    There is definitely something wrong with your machine. Go to the G bar and let them check.

    Couldnt deal with theses freezing issues anymore I had to get some work done. I quickly install Windows 7 on a Bootcamp partition and everything works flawless. This really suck because it was built for OSX. Anyway was able finish my project and on to the next.

    I disagree there is anything wrong with his machine. I have a mid 2010 Macbook Pro with the same sort of issue ever since I installed Mountaion Lion. I have been to the G bar twice, in both cases everything checked out to be just fine hardware wise.

     

    There are numerous other threads about this all over the Internet at the moment. Some serious issues with 10.8 and the Nvidia drivers, again. This was a problem for my model in Lion as well shortly after the 10.7.2 update.

    I'm also having this issue with my new Non-Retina MacBookPro 13 Inch i3, with latest update 10.7.4.

    Also can't use USB3 or USB2 devices.

    :-(
