According to this Engadget report: New MacBook Pros freezing under heavy load? -- Engadget MBP 15" and 17" versions are freezing up during heavy loads, possibly due to overheating.
Anyone here experience this as well? I currently own a 2011 MBP 13", but am considering swapping it for the 15" but this concerns me.

ahh, maybe I will hold on to my 10 month old 15" for the time being.

Where did you read that it was due to overheating? There are numerous threads on the topic - but I haven't seen that listed credibly as a causal factor. You can start here - and wind your way through some of the links embedded therein. I haven't seen the issue myself - but there are reports that Apple is taking a good look at it.
http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/app...-problems.html The prevailing opinion seems to be that Apple will address this in their next firmware release. It's worth keeping an eye on - but unless you're buying it to do some of the Heavy duty video encoding - similar to what you'll see from reading those threads - I wouldn't let it sway you. Mine has been fantastic thus far.
