    Late 2008 MacBook Pro blinking screen
    I was surprised to see nothing apparently on this forum about the problem the above machine has with its 9400 graphics chip causing the screen to blink when it gets hot, and thus users having to use the 9600 chip instead, resulting in only a 2 hour battery life.
    This is one of the largest discussion topics on the Apple discussion forums (Apple - Support - Discussions - MacBook Pro screen blinks ...), going on over 2 years, and recently several users have talked there about getting organised to gather data on the problem to be more effective when approaching Apple, and maybe get some real solutions or compensation. However the discussion moderators have censored these posts, rather than trying to find a solution to the problem (which seems now to be unlikely) or at least to help these customers in sizing the problem by helping to gather the data.
    Hence I am posting now here on this issue to see if this community
    a) knows of a place where this data can be gathered sensibly - I mean email of owner, serial number of machine, OS, whether sent for repair, and whether cured;
    b) knows who and how to contact some competent technical person in Apple with this data (or to help gather it) to help sort this problem amicably.
    Any ideas?

    Not sure this should even be posted here - also your title is wrong because the machine you're speaking of is a MacBook Pro not a MacBook.

    Let's leave it for awhile and see if you get any responses. I'll edit the title.
