Long discussion lists on the Apple website and MacRumors warn of a problem that could affect a considerable portion of owners of the new MacBooks Pro, launched last month. Machines, especially 15 inches, would be braking under high processing in everyday situations like loading a virtual machine, for example.
In such cases, users claim that the machine's processor goes to high temperatures, even freezing the mouse cursor. However, some claim that, even in these circumstances, laptops are available on a network via SSH or other connections, indicating that this may be a graphical processing problem.
Apple has been alerted to the case, but has so far provided no solutions or explanations. Anyone in trouble can seek clarification on a wiki created specifically on the subject.
