Apple Admits MacBook Shutdown Issue

Despite being released several months after the problematic MacBook Pro, Apple's family of black and white MacBooks have had their own fair share of problems as well. The most recent and widely documented problem for the MacBook has been its spontaneous shutdown issue -- the MacBook will randomly shutdown completely without warning or any signs of malfunction. This week Apple has posted an official notice on its website, asking users to call Apple Care for service if they experience random shutdowns.

Laptops seem to be riddled with bugs & malfunctions lately. Battery fires, random shut downs, etc. You'd expect this on the first laptops, not age-old tech.

But we also need to remember that the MacBook's are unique in the fact that they were/are some of the first Core Duo based laptop running Mac OS... This is a brand new technology for Apple getting everything to work nicely with x86 architecture, so problems were bound to occur in these initial stages.

Only problems I've seen with lappies have been the battery issues and this issue? What else has been happening?

Centrino wireless bugs put every centrino user at risk on a wireless network.
