My 6 month old MacBook Pro just started making a weird noise the past two days. The best way to describe it seems to be that it sounds like a car idling in the driveway. A very soft chugging that is repeatable.
Time for a backup and a trip to the Apple store …. if I can get on the Genuis bar list.
Also makes me wonder about the durability of Apple notebooks in general. I bought this b/c my 13 month old 17" Powerbook was in for repair for a bad hard drive and motherboard (I made out OK by taking the prepaid service flat fee not knowing what the problem was). Now this one is barely 6 months old and is showing bad signs.
I’ve been rougher with laptops than I was with these beauties … with no physical problems with the hardware for longer periods of time. Hmmm ….
Anyone else seeing this type of problem on the MacBook?
