MacBook firmware update

Apple today released new firmware that it claims resolves the MacBook shutdown problems plaguing many users. The company has released MacBook SMC Firmware Update 1.1, which it said improves the MacBook's internal monitoring system and addresses issues with unexpected shutdowns. Apple recommends the update for all MacBook systems, including those that received warranty repair, but said that the update requires the installation of Mac OS X 10.4.7 or Mac OS X 10.4.8. In early September, the company acknowledged the MacBook problems by posting a note to its support website and asking affected users to contact AppleCare, while other users suspected other faulty components as the root cause. Users continue to report unexplained, random shutdown problems with the new (and popular) Intel-based consumer laptop and even went as far as creating a website to rally those affected. Recent reports also indicate that some US-based lawfirms were exploring the possibility of a class action lawsuit as well.
