Ever since I turned on my new MacBook in April, I noticed a thing about the noise. It buzzes. Almost sort of buzz+gritty noise+weird humming. I have a YouTube video. Clicky here.


I've had this this thing reach.... *gasp* 219F. It's also been making a weird chemical smell lately, on and off.

:(

The MacBooks have a documented whine problem, same as the early MBPs. I've had a logic board replaced on a MacBook becuase of the whine before.

Also, super hot is not good -- definitely call Apple.

Here's the deal. My crappy TELU$ phone dropped the call to AppleCare before they were gonna give me some "good news". Of course, when I call back, they make me go through a bunch of loops to get back to my first product specialist. The 1st level guy was great, informative, and was really friendly. However, "Charles", the product specialist was a jerk. I said to him "you we're gonna tell me some good news?" and the "good news" was that there are other AASPs in the area!!! Why don't you just replace the damn thing! Of course they don't do Mail In Repairs in Canada because Apple thinks nothing of canada. :(
