I just wanted to get an idea from people how often their client crashes, before I either a) raise it as a bug or b) take my laptop in for repair.
My client crashes pretty much every time I go near a bank. From talking to people on Mumble and chat, this seems a reasonably frequent occurrence for some other people.
My client crashes frequently on entering a settlement. Not entering the settlement hex, but typically at about the point where the inner Thornguards are guarding.
Apart from that, it just crashes. It's got a lot worse since EE3. I have an Acer Aspire 5755G Core i7 Gaming Laptop with 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M gfx card. I have the latest drivers etc. It is 2 1/2 years old, and has been repaired once due to a small child pouring a sticky drink into it.
I expect a lot of the problem is the fan isn't working, so it overheats. However, when the client crashes (it rarely crashes with a proper crash, it tends to either "stop responding" or just disappear) it is just the client that crashes. I don't suffer any problems with other programs e.g. Elite: Dangerous runs fine.
