New MacBook Air Models Experiencing Kernel Panics and Video Problems
It appears that there is a rising number of complaints from users who purchased the new MacBook Air with regard to kernel panics, video problems, and other issues that could be related to defective logic boards. On Apple’s discussion boards there have been several posts about issues with both the 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air models.
