Currently Being ModeratedMar 2, 2009 10:41 PM (in response to dallen33)This is not normal...the computer should not show any graphical artifacts. It should at most get decently hot, but not hot enough to burn or be unbearable to the touch.PowerMac G5 dual 2.5GHz, PowerBook G4 1GHz DVI, MacBook Pro 17" 2.4GHz, Mac OS X (10.5.6), Computers are....yummeh!

I am runing on the 9600M.
This is what I see on the screen. The lines and dots are blinking.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 5, 2009 3:22 PM (in response to A R M)I'd recommend taking the computer back for a replacement ASAP. Apple should give you a new one with no questions asked.PowerMac G5 dual 2.5GHz, PowerBook G4 1GHz DVI, MacBook Pro 17" 2.4GHz, Mac OS X (10.5.6), Computers are....yummeh!

You definitely have a hardware issue if you see things like this on the display. Give Apple a call or take it back. They should issue you a replacement if it is within 14 days of purchase.
