    Because the repair is free and hopefully the problem won't recur. ;)

    I've backed up all my delicates on an external before taking the machine in. Now I just have to live a week in PC-land.

    you should just ask them to order the new palmrest and then bring in the MB when it comes in, so you're only without it for a day, not a week. That's what I did with my MB. There's no reason to give them the MB for a week when the repair takes 20 minutes.

    It's definitely a thought. The Applecare chica told me that they'd have to replace the entire outer casing, and I just took her at her word. I think I like your way better.

    I believe it's covered under warranty. Faulty plastics.

    Someone mentioned (right above you, actually) that if you tell Apple to order the casing for you, then bring the MB in when the casing arrives so the computer isn't gone for a week.
