The new Macbooks are really great machines. I helped a niece getting it on a wireless connection, setting up an e-mail account and so forth. I really liked the machine even though I am not used to Macs.

Regarding that fan: I did a grease job on a noisy fan on a old PC recently and it is running just fine ever since. These fans have simple bush bearings. A small amount of grease is enough to get them going.
Not something any shop will likely be willing to do for you, but it does not take special skills to get it done well. So once you got everything safely on the Macbook, don't dump old Grace too soon.
