Since Fall of that year I've been using it mostly for computer animation and since Spring of last year, I've been using it to play games like Team Fortress 2 on Steam and Deus Ex: Human Revolution on OnLive. The cooling fan inside my MacBook Pro spins up to around 5000 rpm when I play my Steam games to keep it below 100 degrees celsius. I feel confident that it may be ok to play games as I meet the requirements but how long would the fan inside my MacBook Pro last? I never bought Apple Care unfortunately, so how much would it cost to have it fix just in case the worst happens?
