I am experiencing issues with my mid-2010 MacBook Pro as indicated in the article above: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4088. I just updated from Snow Leopard to Mavericks and have been experiencing issues during video playback. Although I occasionally had similar problems in the past, it has gotten far worse with this update. I was unaware of the issue with mid-2010 MacBook Pros until I did the research after this became a major issue.
The crash reports indicate a GPU kernal panic. That is why I believe the issue is related to the problem in the article above. Unfortunately, my AppleCare Protection plan expired in June. From my technician, I understand that the repair could be several hundred dollars if it is a logic board issue. Does anyone have any suggestions to proceed?
