Ok, time for another confession: It's not a real laptop. It's a Macbook. And I keep referring to it as a laptop because I'm kind of ashamed of using an Apple product.
I really dislike Apple.
Every single Apple product I own has been given to me by my parents. Like my iPod for when I graduated. My Macbook was a gift when my old laptop wasn't working so well. And I accepted because I didn't want to look like a spoiled brat for declining their generosity.
And I learned the hard way that you should always get the extended warranty with Apple products. A few months after the warranty expired, problems started happening.
Not quite, but close.
It started out when things got really laggy. I used to be able to run TF2 and Minecraft with minimal problems. Then suddenly I would have extreme lag when watching a Youtube video. It would hear the fan start up when I went onto Facebook. It didn't make sense. It usually never got this hot.
The next flag that suggested something was wrong was when the case started melting onto the Mac. I had a case for it and one day I took it off in hopes of helping the Mac cool down. And that's when I noticed the fried on splotches of plastic.
Needless to say I was concerned.
Don't want something like this to happen.
So I take it into the Mac store and get it checked out. The say it's going to be one of two problems, and they weren't going to be cheap because my warranty had expired. Maybe it was a fan problem which would cost $100 to fix. If not, it was a logic board problem, which would cost $500.
Either way, they needed to run some more in-depth tests to see what was wrong. They said they'd call when everything was figured out.
And I got that phonecall today. Turns out, I have a fan AND logic board problem.
It could be worse I guess.
So I've decided NOT to get the repairs done. Even though my fan is running at double the speed it's supposed to. Even though my logic board is derping harder than a Corgi. I think I'll just start looking into getting a new laptop. A real laptop this time.
Assuming I can find a job. I've sent more applications out but still no response. :(
