"Blue Screen of Death" on MacBook Pro?
According to numerous reports that can be found on the Apple Support Forums, many 2011 MacBook Pro users suffer from Discrete AMD GPUs failures. Apart from this hardware issue, many owners claim their laptops sometimes reboot to a blue or gray screen, which somehow resembles the famous “Blue Screen of Death” found on computers running Windows.
