I'd like to see if anyone else has seen this because I believe this is a design defect. My daughter got one of the first C2D MBP back in late October 2006. She told me several weeks ago that a CD she had put in the slotdrive would not come out. Today I got the chance to take a look for myself. The case over the slotdrive was bend down so the top and bottom of the slot was touching in the middle. When typing one would rest their right palm over the slotdrive. I think over time using that area as a palmrest made this happen. Resting your hand there is normal usage in my mind. I was able to use a piece of metal (with tape around it so it wouldn't scratch the metal) and bend the slotdrive and palmrest area above the drive back into place. I then ejected the disk that was in the drive with no problems. So what you say? I see this happening again. That area above the drive is flimsy. I was able to take my thumb and putting just a little pressure on it bend the slot slightly. This is where plastic (MacBook) has an advantage over metal. Metal bends, plastic has more spring to it. I want to know if anyone who has a C2D MBP has had this problem. If you take a pencil and put it on the left side (of the MBP) and then the right side above the Slotdrive you can see if both sides are level. The only fix I see is to make the metal above and around the slotdrive slightly thicker so it doesn't bend and support ones weight when it is used as a palmrest. PS - my kid weights 115 lbs so she ain't that heavy.
