Hi I have an older MBP... bought in mid-2009 and I've never had a real problem ::knock wood:: However recently it has been a little wonky. Not waking up from sleep, so I have to turn it off and restart it sometimes. Yesterday, I noticed when it would not wake up, it was running very hot! I turned it off and let it rest for a few hours before restarting... it's been ok, but again this morning I had to restart it to turn it on... I really can't afford to replace it right now, nor do I want to. It has a matt screen and as a pro photographer I find this essential for editing...! I'd like to know if there are any good Mac repair places in the L.A. (Pasadena if possible) area that I could have it checked out. I really want to try and save it... rather than give up on it. 5 years might be the longest I've had one of these but I know people buy older ones and refurbish them all the time...this trend to just dump them when they have problems is kind of crazy. For the screen alone, which you can no longer get (I had to special order this one even!) is worth it! Thanks!
