Dear Rev's fellows,

It seems the white and black MacBooks random shutdown has to do with  
processor's height temperature bad handling. The good news is that,  
in this case, Apple don't change the motherboard card anymore but  
only the ventilator. 20% of those MacBooks seems to be affected by  
the problem...

Best Regards,
