Its almost 2 and a half years i have it and now i m facing problems with it starting from 1) taking time to start when switched on 2)Airport sometimes does not respond well 3) battery life finishing fast and the worst of all 4) applications taking time to open and respond. I have spoken to some people who use Mac and they said its something to do with the the Mac over heating........Plzz advice.
