Apr 14 2014, played technician today. This is the result of deciding not to send my mid-2010 15” Macbook Pro in for repair to replace the logic board for $310. Futility! The good news is that my computer still works, so I didn’t break it any further. The bad news is that I am still having the same issues. I just can’t stress the GPU too much or do any extensive work like making animations in Motion 5 or editing complex video sequences in FCP X that will cause my computer to reboot or create what is known as a Kernel Panic. Or KP for short. Blogging, editing photos, checking email and browsing the internet seems to be fine, though. But, reapplying thermal paste will not fix the constant KPing of these model year notebooks for those of you with this… apple. Get it? Nevermind!
