hey, I have a macbook pro that I bought back in june of 2009 and ever since yestureday the left fan has been louder than normal. is this ok or should I go and get it checked out. the last thing i need is for this fan to fail and overheat
First thing to do is back up all your important files.
Second, go to the apple store and talk to the people there. It might not be the fan, my parents had a similar noise and it was actually their hard drive which crashed after. Either way, go get it checked out.
More like have fun making an online appointment for your local apple store and getting it fixed and leaving the store within an hour with all the cash still in your wallet since its covered under warranty.
Macs have substandard hardware. Its a given when you buy them. But I'd rather take a chance at having my hardware fail than deal with the daily frustration of running a horseshit OS like Windows. Just my 2 cents.
