    i have very slight staining on my new 1.8 macbook white and today i took it to the store.

    They said no problems and have a part on order, im taking it in to be repaired in 2-3 days - very good service i suggest you do the same should you have this problem.

    Ya I got the same from the Applecare guy on the phone calling from here in the UK - I can make an appointment and get the part(s) swapped over.

    Mine is starting to show staining a bit, but I'm not sure if it's bad enough to take in...

    can you guys take pictures of the stained parts so that I can see how bad yours is and if I should call and say something?

    Actually I just took some pictures, but it doesn't show up very well... It shows up better in natural light, to the point that the stain is pretty much brown when I sit on my deck relaxing.

    I've been wondering. Do you actually have to have staining, or can you do a pre-emptive swapping of cases? Also, does anyone have experience as to how long it should take?

    Oh, btw. Hello! :p
