After 2 years of use the Logic Board overheated and died....so I pay the $600 (!!) to replace the board, hoping that if I am REALLY careful, don't use the machine all the time and keep it well ventilated, I might get a few more years out of it.
8 months later it's dead again and this time I'm not getting suckered into replacing the bloomin' logic board.
So I do some research. It turns out that overheating is a VERY widespread issue with MacBook Pros and a wide variety of other Apple equipment. Because cooling isn't as important as looking Cool!
