    The right hand side of my MacBook (the plastic where the keypad is in) feels slightly loose. I press it down and it feels as if I could pull it off. I haven't put my MacBook through anything strenuous, so this obviously makes me sad. But...I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this or if there are ways to fix it or prevent further loosening.

    Nope I just checked my Macbook and its not loose there. It is however a tad loose around all my ports on the left side of the macbook but I think that thats normal as the ports are all there and the plastic is thin in those areas. You might oughta take it in to the Apple store and get them to fix that. With how much systems cost nowadays you should get what ya pay for no matter what. Especially from a good company such as Apple :D

    My iBook is that way. Put up with it. Apple won't fix it. It doesn't matter how much the system costs, SiNNeD. What matters is if Apple will repair it, and I know for FACT that they won't.

    No harm in trying. If they get all funny with you, tell them you want to speak to the manager, and if he says something along the lines of 'mass produced - can't help it - nothings perfect - bound to have slight differences etc'' tell him there was no fault or problems with the £700+ you handed over - you did your bit, they should honour their.

    Or tell them you want it fixed now, and its becoming widespread on the internet a lot of MBs are suffering from it - and you don't want to put up with it, and then it breaks outside of your 12 month warranty.

    Oh man, that sucks. There's no Apple Store anywhere near me, so I guess I have to wait until I come back home (there's one near my hometown, not near my college).

    If this happened in two months with careful use, I can only imagine what will happen as time goes on. :(
