Does this update address the issue of freezing while under heavy CPU/GPU loads? The article said that it repaired issues with Boot Camp, but mentioned nothing about the other crashy errors...



After reading this article I decided to update my 2011 Macbook Pro, specifically because of problems freezing running an external 24inch Hp monitor. I performed the update and my Magic Trackpad was no longer paired. I tried and tried to pair it and it wouldn't connect. I searched Apple forums and apparently bluetooth accessories; Magic Keyboard, Magic Trackpad, and Magic Mouse, are all rendered inoperable by this update. People had posted that they had contacted Apple, and one was even getting a new keyboard sent out. It's not the devices as mine work fine with my other computers. On a lighter note, the external display update fix my issues with slowness when running the display. It was such a problem I could not even run Parallels 6 with my 2011 i7 Macbook Pro on the external display. It all worked great after the update besides the trackpad issue. I decided to revert back using a time machine backup and now my trackpad works again. Hopefully they get this fixed because I would really like to use my trackpad and have my external display work correctly. So if your using Magic devices you might won't to hold out a bit before updating.
