I got my very first mac nearly a year ago, but not quite…which is good, since it’s still covered by warranty until July 21st, and I’ve got an appointment for today with the guys at the Pasadena Apple Store to get my macbook serviced.

I have a case of bad fan, which grinds like a dying giraffe. I’ve got a short clip of it here. It starts grinding once the thing is warmed up, and the fan speed pegs out at about 4000-5000rpm. If given a peculiar tap, sometimes the grinding stops, and the fan pops up to 6100rpm.

UPDATE 2007-07-18:  Dropped it off on monday, got a call on tuesday night it was finished, picked it up today.  So far so good, no nasty fan noise.  Thanks Apple!
