I just wanted to get a take on this. I recently sold my Macbook and still have a 2.66ghz iMac at home. I was going to pull the trigger on a new shiny MBP than I started doing some checking the the 330M I wish it were a better card.
So I got the idea to sell my iMac as well and get the iMac i7 and a low end MBP 13. Now this is what I would use it for. I need a portable for presentations, I do light photoshop and web work, entering into video FCP etc. I also bootcamp for bits of gaming (L4D, Dragon Age) and eyeing SC2 later on. With this in mind there are 3 issues. 1: [URL]
2: the iMac Screen issues (yellowing)and 3: the cost will be about $300 more so $900 MBP only vs $1200 iMac and low end MBP. I would like to save some money but damm only $300 more... aargghh
I think i must have let it over heat and from what i'm gathering the glue has peeled off. I need to take it into my mac store but do you think they will do this without a fuss as ive already had to pay and extra ¬£50 for a new lead (still in guarentee) as it was faulty and I do not want to keep spending money on this.
I have a 15" Mac Book Pro that I bought in May of 2011. Especially, when I watch movies or use Skype it gets hot.† It's not hot like it can burn me or anything.† And I realize they "work" harder when using Skype or watching vids but I was wondering if the computer getting warmer is normal ?
From the time I bought my new Macbook in Mid-February, it gets hot over small stuff.... and starts getting way hot when i start playing any game like CivilisationV, Sims3 etc.Sometimes its CPU temperature reaches ~93 degrees Celsius and Fan Speen reaches 6500 rpm according to istat pro of Dashboard, and it gets difficult to even rest my palm on the sides of touchpad and keypad..¬†I contacted customer care here, and they said to make a backup cuz they will put Lion again..¬†Is it Operating System's fault? Dirt's Fault? Manufacturer defect? or is it Normal?My Charger adapter also gets wayy too much hot after around 20 minutes that I cudnt even touch it!¬†

I am new to macs. I just bought a used macbook air, and realized 3 screws were missing from the bottom, I called all the local repair shops, no one has screws for it. I would really like to get the screws. Longer ones by the fan I am more concerned about, where could I order them from without getting a while set for like $40? It is out of warranty so apple will not give me the screws.
I have a Macbook from 2008 that I've had for just under two years now. The bottom row of keys (zxcvbnm,.) often do not register my keystrokes. For example I would push the keys and nothing would happen on screen. Its never been near water, I haven't had the need to clean it with a sponge or anything since I've had it.
I was wondering if Apple could replace my keyboard if I sent it in. I'm unsure since the keys actually work about a third of the time what the best (and least expensive) route to take is.
I own a 15 inch late 2008 unibody MacBook Pro. I have recently discovered that one of the screws on the bottom of it is missing. I am not sure where I can buy some new screws for it. Does anyone have any insight into this?
My girlfriend's MacBook has some deep scratches on the bottom that a polish kit would not fix. I wanted to buy a new bottom cover and replace it for her. I have found quite a few on eBay, but I am not sure on which model will fit. She has the new white NVIDIA MacBook. I assume that because the motherboard is different, would she need a case specific for the NVIDIA model, or will an older Core 2 Duo case work all the same?
lower third of the 13" new MBP, is darker than the rest. So when I am reading forums, the top starts off with white background, and the bottom is clearly a darker grey. This only is visible when setting the backlight to less than 75% max brightness. Normally I have it at half brightness. I am gonna be crazy with taking these things back. My big cheap Dell LCD and E6500 laptop have no where near the uniformity issues this Macbook has been having. Is this common or do I keep getting bad ones?
I was wondering if anyone with a i7 macbook pro could test to see if the very bottom of your trackpad responds to anything. Right now I can't get it to register a single thing if my finger is at the very bottom and sliding horizontally along. The strange thing is it works just fine in all other parts. I noticed it because as I use the pad I would get up to that point and think hey why is my cursor not moving anymore. Can anyone confirm this is how it is supposed to be or is my trackpad a lemon.
i think that there is something wrong with my macbook display, but i am not very sure. This problem has been there since the day i bought my macbook so i thought there was nothing wrong till i read one of a post in this forum.
The bottom sides of the macbook screen seems relatively dim as compared to the other sides of the screen and specially prominent when viewed in a white screen. Is there something wrong with the backlight? Should i send to an apple service centre then?
I took my MacBook to the Apple Store about a month ago because of a problem and the person opened it up to look inside.¬†Now a couple of the screws on the bottom are coming loose and the bottom plate moves up and down a bit.¬†My question is am I allowed to tighten the screws myself because I heard opening it voids my warranty but what about simply tightening them.¬†
I have a problem with my MacBook Pro and its the fact that the trackpad is now sticking towards the bottom so there isn't a tactile click anymore, the trackpad just goes down. Im wondering if this is because I accidentally dropped something sticky into the bottom left corner or if it's just worn out. The bottom right and the middle of the trackpad is still clicking as if new.¬†

I've just got a 13" MBP and I've noticed that around the middle of the bottom plate can be pressed in slightly. I can notice it most when I pick the laptop up by putting my hands underneath it and it bends inwards slightly. Does anyone else notice this on their MBPs?
I purchased the 2.26 13" MBP (4GB RAM) yesterday afternoon. When I came home, I set it up and started to notice a couple of streaks (.5" thick) on the right side and half of the bottom of the screen. I have a 9C9E screen and have it tested it on the Earth (centered) wallpaper with full brightness. It tends to go away after 40% brightness.
I did a search and could only find information about the last rendition of mbps, and I see they had problems with bleeding along the bottom part of the screen. I just got my umbp a week ago, but I've been so busy finding a place to live for grad school that I haven't had the chance to use it. I looked at it in the dark yesterday, and I'm super anal. I saw a small amount of backlight bleeding on the bottom left corner of the screen, perhaps half an inch on the left side of the screen, just in one area (not along the entire left side).I wish I could take a picture, but my digital camera is nowhere to be found. Is a small amount of backlight bleeding acceptable, or should I exchange for a new umbp?
I just bought my white MacBook and its a great computer except for the 2 dead pixels that i found. On the left side there are 2-3 dead pixels about 1 inch from the bottom of the screen and 1 inch from the top.
I bought it from BestBuy this Sunday and only discovered the problem today. So my question is can they tell me that it is OK for an LCD to have 2-3 dead pixels and refuse to do anything with it? It is unacceptable in my opinion, as the LCD technologies have been out for a while, as well as Apple's products are usually of very high quality.
I've noticed that when my recently-acquired 15" MBP is on my lap, the bottom makes a clicking/creaking sound when the laptop is moved around, which is quite common when you're balancing it on your lap. (Yes, yes, it's not a "laptop" but a "notebook" but I still like being able to use it that way).
