Update for 15- and 17-inch mid 2010 models

Apple has released an EFI firmware update for recent 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro models. Version 1.9 provides a bug fix for an issue that sometimes caused systems to freeze during startup or occasionally stall during normal operation.

    Wasn't this something that Apple made fun of Windows for doing? Well it looks like the tables have turned. Windows 7 is the rock stable os and OSX is the POS. No wonder Apple got rid of those I'm a Mac ads. They're pure lies.

    No, it is nothing like it. MS has the blue screen of death. That's what they mocked. This is just a computer freezing. Probably not evening core dumping.

    Apple really needs to get on that quality control problem they are having. I'm just glad I got the previous model BEFORE the hybrid Intel/Nvidia 2010 model...LOL
