    When unloading my powerbook out of its case to place it on the table, I noticed that the base slightly moves to the bottom left everytime I apply pressure on the keyboard.

    As I discovered, one of the rubber grommets underneath the base has gone missing from the face of the earth. Goodness knows how.

    Does anyone have any solutions around this? I know this may sound silly, can't you buy a pack of rubber grommets anywhere?

    Thanks

    I am pretty sure if you take it to the apple store the genius bar can fix it for you although I have never done it.

    But solution really isn't convenient for me as the nearest Apple store is 55 miles away.

    55miles? That's what an hour away by car, you got a sweet deal. I've got 20mins by car, 45mins by plane, 35mins by train, another 30mins by tube + misc. hanging about waiting and walking time to get to an AppleStore!




    BUt then I have a drawer full of rubber gromets nah nah na nah nah!

    Excellent. Just what I was looking for. $19.99?! I guess I'll have to bite the bullet. Although the trouble is, I am located in good Old Blighty. A bit a daft to international ship four little rubber grommets that would fit in a letter instead.

    It's a 1.67Ghz 17'' powerbook.

    Have you tried just calling an AppleStore and asking them to put some in the post? The guy I talked to at the Meadowhall store seemed very helpful.....but then I'm charming on the phone.
