my mac book pro gets very hot on the bottom do I need to be concerned about this?
my mac book pro gets very hot on the bottom do I need to be concerned about this?
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.
the iMac Screen issues (yellowing)and
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.View 3 Replies View Related
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.
My MBA is built to order.
On a flat glass table, only 3 feet touch the table. The bottom right is off. Anyone else have this problem?
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?View 2 Replies View Related
Hey, my friends white MacBook has a crack on the bottom, I know this is quite common. But he was just wondering what he could do about it. Should he take it to Apple and see what they can do?View 1 Replies View Related
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?View 2 Replies View Related
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?View 1 Replies View Related
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.View 2 Replies View Related

Weird question. If you have your applications folder in the bottom bar. When you click on it to select a app, does I lag at all?
I've been having nothing but problems with this thing it seems . Does not seem as fast as I expe ted it to be.
When in my list of email messages in Apple's Mac Mail, I can't seem to find a way to key command to the top or bottom of the list of messages.¬†

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.¬†View 5 Replies View Related
I opened my 15 inch macbook pro 2011 today and my right click was not working, I checked the settings and they were all correct. The two finger and left corner right click both work.

If I view a pure white image it looks like maybe 1/4" has a slight gradient. The darkness in the right corner is a little more prominent and extends maybe 1/2" Anyone else seeing this on their 11"?View 8 Replies View Related
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?View 6 Replies View Related
One of the four rubber feet on the bottom of my MBP has fallen off. Is this covered by Applecare? Can I just pretty much walk in, talk to a Genius and get a new on on the spot?View 8 Replies View Related
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.View 13 Replies View Related
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?View 3 Replies View Related
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).View 8 Replies View Related
I am a proud owner of an Apple Macbook Pro 15 inch since Feb 2009. I am a converted user from PC to MAC and preach the benefits of Apple OS X et al to colleagues, friends and family. This morning I noticed some slight peeling on the bottom right side (near trackpad) of my Macbook Pro. At first I did not realise what it was, I thought it might be some surface marking / dust. I wiped the area with a dry cloth at which point a small part of the surface came away. Here is a link showing images that I have just taken. Need some constructive advice from the forum on what to do?View 24 Replies View Related
So I bought a refurb nvidia White MacBook a couple weeks ago and one of the problems I have noticed is that the screen is not flush with the bottom case when closed. The problem is worse on the right side than the left (near the indicator light).
I know that with refurbs you risk getting a slightly less than perfect computer. However, I don't want this problem to get worse. When I first got it I didn't really care but now I'm thinking of the future and of the "what if it gets worse" scenario where I take it in and they think I physically damaged it by accident.
It seems that i cannot open the bottom cover after getting all the screws off,View 8 Replies View Related
I slipped up a few times and caused hairline scratches on the underside plate of my 13" MBP when I installed my Momentus XT (which I am now returning and getting X25-M). My heart dropped when I heard these screeching noises, but it doesn't look too bad and hopefully eliminates the OCD I tend to have with electronics.View 12 Replies View Related
I've never owned a MacBook or mbp, so I'm not sure about the macbooks in this regard. I know the mbp has the case that helps distribute heat. Does the new macbooks get hot on the bottom like other laptops? Looking to buy one for my wife and she doesn't like how hot some laptops get when on her lap.View 1 Replies View Related
