View Full Version : MBA: Problems with the aluminum?

Feb 8, 2008, 10:59 AM
Please help me!! I bought the MBA yesterday and have 4 noticeable pinhole sized dents in the aluminum. They are obviously very small, but I wonder if this is a cosmetic defect and makes worthwhile to ask for an exchange?

Also, there is a gap where the upper right portion where the screen meets the back casing. It doesn't look like this on any of the other sides of the screen. On all the other sides the gray rubber strip is flush between the screen and back casing.

Should I exchange it?

I am not seeing any problem however you need a new camera:)

Do you have a digital camera that has a feature for up close photography?

Anyways, considering its on the bezel it sounds just like a little side effect of the manufacturing. The bezel is applied differently than other parts of the MBA. It's more likely to get a little messed up. In an extreme case you can probably get a replacement. I wouldn't say your case is extreme though.

Yes if they are there then exchange it. My 1.8 SSD had a nic right by the trackpad button and I took it back and exchanged it. I dropped $3400 on my entire purchase and told them if it was going to be scratched then I was the one who would do it
