checking my emails, macbook sat on table running on battery power no other device plugged in to the machine. the machine crashed then started to smoke and got very hot, i took the machine to a certified apple repair center and they could not do anything because the machine had run out of apple care 2 weeks previous, they recommended that i contacted apple to see if i could get a extended warranty because machines should not just catch fire for a unknown reason. i have spent hours on the phone to apple and have been with out my machine for over 4 weeks now, and counting. while they decide if i can have my warranty extended. has any one else had there macbook catch fire? macbook white Mac OS X (10.5.6) caught fire!
