AS well after on for a bit there is a weird buzzing beeping noice ~ ~ however it could just be over heating because I had it set on a pillow ~ could this be or is it more likely internal damage ~ ~ ps this is my first lap top.

$50 sounds like a GREAT deal for fixing that damage.

Yeah, I agree. $50?! Do it. Now. Before they change their mind.

I think the OP is trying to say it's $50 for the inspection. Plus the cost of whatever parts they would need to replace, plus the cost of labor (how many hours it takes).

Why not give it to Apple and have them tell you what needs to be done and get a quote from them first? Then you can price shop at authorized third party repair center (if price is a concern) or if time is a factor, then weigh that in as well in terms of turn around time.
