Kernel Panic???? HELP!!!!

Your Airport card shows up as the problem in both of those. It might be the driver or the card itself. You can turn off wireless and run your internet over ethernet over the holidays. Then take it back for a warranty repair when you get the chance to.

It's most likely a hardware problem... take it back to Apple for warranty repair.
They'll want to keep it overnight (or longer) so they can let it run until it crashes ...

I agree with the above. The vast majority of kernel panics are hardware related. Even if you can diagnose them by reading the logs, you probably won't be able to fix the problem yourself. (Unless it's RAM-related, which is sometimes the case.) The so-called "clean install" rarely fixes anything.
Please don't be insane.

If it's a low-level fault there's not many ways to check between drivers or hardware because without the drivers, the hardware won't work. You can bootup without any drivers by holding the shift key down. I would try running it in that mode and see what happens. Again, this is just temporary to allow you to backup documents or use it before taking it back for a repair. If you have files on the machine, make sure you duplicate them to an external because if they give you a replacement, they won't copy your settings over.

If it doesn't kernel panic at all while you use it in safe mode, it means that at the very least, the most critical hardware is working ok - the motherboard, power supply, RAM and hard drive. I think it disables your GPU though. Safe mode being ok would limit the fault to your GPU and networking hardware.

If you are running in normal boot mode and it is not showing the kernel panic, there's a chance that you had a corrupted driver cache. But given that a Windows install blue-screened, I'd say it's unlikely to be limited to software. Try using your wifi for a while and see if you get anther panic. Sometimes hardware faults can be erratic and show no signs for a while and then fail again.

That backtrace doesn't list the problem like the first one. I wouldn't waste much time trying to diagnose it, it's not likely a problem you will be able to fix yourself. If you take it back, they will replace it for you.

Very often loose or very slightly dislodged RAM DIMMs can cause kernel panics. If you are comfortable opening up the access inside the battery compartment and pushing them in while jiggling a very tiny bit, it may or may not help.

If you still get kernel panics after reseating the RAM like that take it back for warranty repair, you have a bad problem -- probably hardware related -- that will only frustrate you further, and there is no need for that.
