My brand new 17" MBP (August 2011) has a serious problem: Despite the AC adaptor is plugged in, the battery starts to drain (or is unable to charge if it is lower than 95%) when I ran intensive tasks (like rendering with After FX, convert videos with Compressor or start to play a videogame). I tested it and it happens under Mac OS X and Windows 7 (BootCamp).

I readed some user have the same problem with 15" & 17" MBP 2011 models. But I haven't found any solution.
Anyone knows if this is a hardware or software failure? Do I need to ask Apple for a new machine?

Any help will be welcome. Thanks.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 17" 2.2Ghz QuadCore i7
