Hi everybody, Recently my mbp ( SR 2,2 Ghz July'07) has developed a problem with its right fan (with heavy tasks such as audio/video processing,it makes a horrble noise, as it's about to brake), and I can't burn cd' nor dvd's with the superdrive. Also the battery seems to be in not a good state (check the attachments, according to cconut battery my laptop is 24458 months old!), but I think applecare doesn't cover them. I have applecare, but i'm leaving for a month trip (in 3 days, so no chance that apple in The Netherlands can fix it on time), were I'll need the laptop (only for mail/office needs nothing intensive). My question is: Do you think that the fan problem can damage the computer?, so 1.- it's better to leave the laptop in apple hands and get it back in 4 weeks or 2.- take the laptop with me and go to applecare in 4 weeks. I know that seems an stupid question but I don't know how badly the computer can be damaged in other parts with this fan problem...and I'll probably need the laptop to work. On the battery...is it worth to try to get it replaced?. If so, How should approach the topic as they are not usually covered?. Thank anyone and please forgive my english!
