    Should I send mine in? It's unbearable to touch for more than 4 seconds around the keyboard...

    There is a fix and you need to contact Apple Care to send it in. The fix, whatever it is, has been nothing short of amazing for my unit, which I never thought made much noise. But it is like a completely different machine now. No noise, heat, and it runs perfect. Here is what they replaced...

    612-0020 ASSY, INVERTER, NCC, MBPRO15"
    659-0290 ASSY, KYBD, M1
    630-7685 SVC, MLB,2 16GHZ, 256VRAM (M1-CAP) MBP15"
    616-0260 BAT, LITHION, 60WHR, PLYMR, SMPLO/ATL, MBP

    I received the letter and new install disks. I had sent this in to them because of clunk noise near hard drive, and keyboard issues. Keyboard works perfectly now. Also came back without any cosmetic damage.

    So if I send mine in saying it's very very hot (which it is when its on :rolleyes: ), then they could fix it?

    They are doing the MLB repair based on serial number. Call Apple and see what they can do for you.

    I'm having (had) the same work done on my MacBook Pro. I was getting a really bad "lawnmower" noise through both my speakers and the heat was just unbearable. I had my insurance company fix a bad gash on my casing, but they ended up making it worse by bending certain areas, so Apple had replaced the top panel. I get it on Monday, very eager to see how it performs.

    They said they had replaced the: HD, Left Fan, Heat Sensor, Trackpad Button, and Top Panel. Here's to your results guys and gals.
