I just got my 2nd Macbook. Specs are 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo, 2G Ram (from factory), 160 HD.

I've had it for less than a month and in the past few days I've gotten 2 kernel panics. I've never gotten one before on my older Macbook, which I've had since November. Each time, all I was doing was browsing in Safari, and I might have had iTunes and/or iChat opened.

Wtf!?!??!?!?!?!?! Please help!

If you're having kernel panics, it's generally a sign of faulty hardware, most probably the RAM. You should get it checked out by your local Apple Store. Most likely they'll either ship it out or just swap the memory (if that indeed is the problem) and you should be good to go.
