This problem has been slowly building getting worse and worse, and is not close to making my dear Mac damn near unuseable. This needs to be fixed, I cant afford anything no new laptop no nothing. I've had my macbook for about 2 summers. used to able to watch movies play wow (all turned down) basicly go nuts on it. Sometimes the playing wow gave problems. but having an external monitor photoshopping and coding while watching a movie was no problem at all. Now I cant even stream the laptop lags up if I let it lag without pauseing the video it ****s up the sound not sure how to explain it. and if I am really unlucky I get a kernel panic. the computer do run really hot sometimes, but it didnt used to. and I dont think normal wear and tear is making it overheat like this. right now its running a temp of 64C with 6200 RPM (max RPM) this is a pretty low number for me as it usally run 80C at all times sometimes being able to top at 90. I am at the ends of my robe I dont wanna loose my mac. I hope you guys can help me out.
