This is my first macbook I got December 2008. Fast forward 5 years and it's still kicking HOWEVER the fans come on heavy during video playback or if I have a lot of Chrome tabs open. Sometimes they come on when it's just a ESPN clip or a bunch of GIFs. I've maxed the ram to 8gb. Added a SSD which has the OS Lion 10.8.1 and programs on it. Pulled the CD drive and put the old HDD there. This cut down the fan problem for probably 6 months but now they come on again. Oh and some times I'll be typing and the screen blanks out and it goes into sleep it seems. Any thoughts? Easy fix? Gonna last? I wanted to install Parralells and Windows because I need some PC software but I worry it cant handle that. I use this for work (education) and home and cant have it take a dump mid day. ALSO...being this old I was thinking about getting an Macbook Air instead. I can also get a lightly used 2012 Macbook Pro 13" - Core i7 2.8Ghz w 8GB DDR3 for $750 but I'd have to act pretty fast. I dont like it not having an SSD though. Mine boots so fast now.
