  1. Several early 2013 MacBook Pro with Retina display owners are reporting a problem with the system’s cooling fan. Based on a number of reports across the web and even on Apple’s own discussion boards, the problem seems to be that...

  2. I had SO many troubles with my rMBP, it's unspeakable. It crashes every now and then, or gets stuck. iTunes sometimes is skipping audio when playing. It would hang while working with my Netgear NAS. Safari renders pages erroneously and sometimes computer hangs when I zoom in and out in it. I had to install a third party program to fix the nasty scrolling accelerator they introduced in Mountain Lion. Not to mention the stupid multi-lingual system where the keyboard layout gets changed in applications against your will... I think this fan issue is the only thing I didn't have. And there is a lot of people having similar problems, even changing their logic boards and that doesn't help. It's the most expensive computer I ever had, and the most problematic one. I'm waiting eagerly for new version of OS X, hoping it will solve the issues. My previous macbook pro didn't have a single problem, ever! If Apple won't pay attention to product quality, they will fall. They only got as high as that because of their software. Yeah, hardware design was great, but it was reliable and well-designed software that attracted professionals. And who else will pay thousands for a buggy computer? We can have that for a few hundred.

  6. the issue may stem from a bug in the system’s fan management software when using new SanDisk solid state drives ..or the real issue--> there's a bug within system's fan management software alone?
     
  7. I guess a hacker got a hold of your fan control. Dam Chinese hackers. Oh wait maybe it's the Russians. No wait. Lituanians. No wait Romanians. Ah who knows maybe E.T. is phoning home.
     
  8. Wow. Some one was alowed to post about hardware issues in their forums. Usualy when one complains of hardware issues they get deleted in a couple of hours. You can only ask questions. If you complain of issues in there they get deleted or censored.
