Unless you're running an application that purposely generates "triangles & squares" for 1-2 minutes...I would say taking it back to the "Apple Shop" would be a great idea...especially since you still have Applecare.

Even if you don't have Applecare, it's still under warrenty. Make an appointment at the Genius Bar at your nearest Apple Store. Used them a few times and they are excellent.
