    hey everyone,
    i just bought a new 15" MBP a few days ago and i found a slight chip in the casing on the right side. It's under the gray lining and it's really small, but since i noticed it i can't get the thought out of my head that there is a chip. I've called apple today and they told me that i can go to a local apple authorized store and get the case replaced. Should i bring it in and get the case replaced or should i just leave it alone?? :confused: I'm just afraid that i might look like an idiot trying to replace a case just because there's a minor chip (it's not noticeable to the naked eye, but once you catch see you can't not notice it) , but i feel since i since i've spent so much money on this MBP, i want to retain it's condition as long as i can.

    Any suggestions on what i should do???

    if it bothers you even in the slightest, you should get it fixed.

    But then the geniuses at the apple store might roll their eyes.

    I know what you mean. Whenever I get something new and I find something cosmetically wrong with it I go crazy even if it's something so tiny.

    I wish I could not care, but at least your issue could be bad in the long run if you don't take care of it.

    so yah, i get my mac book pro exchanged today because of that minor chip. After coming home from the apple store, i opened the box and guess what i saw? The latch on the macbook was scratched and dented, so i decided to call the Apple store and they tell me come in and get it exchanged. Once i got there, the sale rep tells me to open it up and inspect it, at the time it seemed fine and i was finally content to know that i was finally going to have a beautiful non-damaged MBP. After coming home from the apple store again within 5 minutes installing all my apps i noticed another chip right above my dvd-rom- how i could i not see that at the store :confused: - i even asked the sale rep to take a look at it and she said it was perfect. I guess i'm stuck with this macbook even though this is my third unit :(. So just to be on the safe side, if any one who is planning to buy a mac, just remember to carefully examine the unit before you end up like me. :mad:
