    This i am sure has been covered else-where but a search didnt turn up much.

    I have a early 2006 mbp which has been great for many years. But now the power supply is completely chared. After 5 years i figure this is acceptable.

    But my question is, have others had there mbp burn out after shorter time?

    Really hot laptops are fine by me, i just hate the thought that im slowly burning my machine up. The programs i use today are far more demanding than 6 years ago, so you know. i have concerns about dropping another 2thou+

    ps when is the new mbp getting releases. haha just kidding. thought id rile some feather.

    If only the power supply is toast, why not get a new one?

    And what applications do you use that are so demanding? Anyway, a current Mac will not just burn due to high CPU usage, and if it does, you always have a warranty.

    Every part on a laptop can be replaced I believe. Take it to apple if you dont want to purchase another computer just yet and see what they can do.

    Certainly better than buying another computer! Maybe they will not be able to do anything for a reasonable price, but it never hurts to try.
