    Ihave a 15 inch MBP. Small problem... the C on the words MacBook Pro under the screen has fallen off. Its not the big of a problem but it is kinda annoying. Anyone know how I could go about getting another one?

    Sell it to your Ma' and purchase a new one. She'll love the customization.

    How did it fall off? It looks like it is engraved to me...

    Well the shape is engraved, but it seems like the dark silver part is just a sticker down in there. You can still make out where the C was, its just a differant color.

    The same exact thing happened with my new 17" MacBook Pro. The 'c' just came off as I ran my fingers across the lettering literally the same day the FedEx guy dropped it off at my house.

    Strange little problem, eh?

    wow...

    wow, i always thought that was etched in. Then i felt the lettering and noticed it's not.

    Have you had the laptop less than a year? If so, show it to the Apple Store. As i recall, they have a reconditioning factory where they have stuff like that.

    The letters on my PowerBook are almost certainly screen printed on, I'm surprised this is not the case for MBPs :eek:

    The exact same thing just happened on my 17". I knew it wasn't etched on but I didn't think it would just pop off one day. I'm definitely going to complain about this because it definitely makes my brand new laptop look way too broken in.
