So I've had my MBP for a little over a year, and over the past 6 months i've had one problem after another. It's a 2.16 dual core, 2gb ram. Let's start with the heating issue. My CPU rarely sees temps below 60, enclosure base never below 30. That's not on my lap, just on a wooden desk. If I close it while it's warm, it doesn't wake up. Then I have to shut it down manually, and it takes at least 15 minutes to start back up. I'm also pretty sure my firewire ports are loose, or something is wrong with them. Whenever I connect my firewire compactflash reader, i have to wiggle it around for it to be recognized. Same with my LaCie 1TB external on FW800. USB devices work just fine. There's also spots inside my screen, as well as a small hair (eyelash?) trapped in the screen. Being over a year old, nothing is covered by warranty, and taking it to the mac store will only run me up a bill of at least a thousand dollars. Nothing a student can afford. What can i do?!
