Bought my MBP in Nov 2007 and thinking about making it my primary machine since I am moving to Japan. I don't game anymore. Mostly web stuff, YouTube, Hulu, watching movies, working with photos. Considering I don't push the heat to the max in my machine with those task, I'm wondering if I would make it quite some time without a failure. Granted, before someone decides to tell me what I do already know. I know the 8600 is just a ticking bomb that will eventually fail. I'm just trying to differentiate between those that fail multiple times in the span of a year or two vs. those who have not had that level of problems.
