Some sites have started reporting that there are certain graphics glitches in the latest Macbook/Pro. I have the new Macbook but havent experienced any sort of graphics glitches yet. (hope it continues to be good)

Is there anyone with this problem already?

Yup i've stumbled across it on the new black macbook.. basically quicktime videos seem to play with a flickering effect.. if i move a window over the video just a little (i used the dock last night) it plays fine..

Yep, I have a very small flicker/light pulsing if I use Firefox running movie clips from web pages. Play the same thing in Safari and it plays fine.

Don't use Firefox anymore anyway.

I use beta 5 and still get the issue :/

I have a stick of 2 gb ram in the first slot and the second is a 1 gb.. i know the gfx card uses shared memory i.e. system memory.. maybe it just doesn't like using that stick.. if i get bored i might put the original stick back in and see if the problem still exists.
