    Hi!

    I bought a white macbook (with default specs, 1GB) around September in 2006. I bought it with my scholarship money that I earned over the summer. Anyways, now a days.. the macbook gets hot fast and the fan starts making sound (just like when you turn on a normal fan, that breeze sound).

    Can I take my Macbook to the Apple Store and get a replacement? Perhaps, a C2D Macbook? I didn't buy AppleCare though.

    Thanks!

    It should still have the one year warrenty that comes with it, so they should fix it.

    they would try to fix it not replace it...


    and the fans turning on to cool itself is normal, they probably would give you a funny look....

    You can always true. Another one of our regulars here managed to get a 2.2ghz Macbook Pro after he fought with Apple over some computer issues.

    the fan's probably turning on, because it's getting hotter. after all, it is summer. my g5 would get really hot with fans running nonstop all throughout the summer, but it ran quietly during the winter. i think you're fine.

    WOW? I must contact that person ASAP!

    Maybe you guys are right. It is summer and the humidity kills it. I'm going to sell it to my sister for $1400 then buy a Macbook pro end of summer after I receive some more $$ from internship.

    I reckon unless your Macbook completely dies and you can't use it, Apple won't replace it, especially since you got it in Sept last year.

    Why would your sister buy a secondhand older model for $1400 when she can get a brand new one with better specs for $1099?

    No. I am not taking advantage of it. She asked me If I wanna sell it to her.
