Yet another reason not to buy a new MacBook Pro

The Nvidia graphics chips are still using a design known to fail. The integrated solution on the regular MacBook doesn’t have this problem, since it does not have a separate graphics chip. I already had forseen selecting Nvidia for a notebook was a mistake – seems I was right. Of course, since there is also video in the chipset, this problem merely means that you will have slower video after the separate graphics chip fails.
