    Well my luck ran out....and here I thought I was very fortunate since my MBP is on the "cool side" and has no whine. Starting this afternoon I started getting the "click". It is obviously the fan on the right side, since I can put some real load on my CPU, thus the fans kick in, and the click slowly fades away.

    *** is going on with Apple? My love affair with Apple should not include frequent trips to a repair center!!??

    So I guess I'll take it in and see if I can get the fan replaced. I hate to think that they will replace it with the same sh*t. What about an after market fan? Is this a viable option?

    BTW, I found a very short term non-technical fix (from my old PC days). On the uppermost right side corner take two fingers and give the old MBP a "Fonzie" snack. Might take a couple of hard taps, but the clicking will go away for awhile....again proof that Apple is using low quality fans (what a bummer).

    I can get a good 30-45 minute run without the click using this trick, at which point I repeat the beeatch smack. Should hold me over until I can get the fan replaced. Again I ask, any after market options on replacing the fan?
