I have a MacBook that I purchased in Aug. of 2006 for $1000. Today, I got the blue screen of death. My hard drive failed and I have that clicking noise that no one wants to hear. I got it estimated and for the same GB, it would cost about $300-400. I don't have apple care, unfortunately. My CD drive is also acting up but again, since I stupidly never purchased applecare, I haven't gotten it fixed. I am trying to decide if I should purchase a new laptop, get applecare and move on or should I fix the hard drive on this model. Since it's almost 3 years old, I'm wondering if the money put into it would be worth it.
