    I got my MacBook yesterday... and theres scratches around the trackpad in certain lighting, pencil marks on the trackpad and button, and now the spacebar is squeaking like mad!

    Call Apple or not?

    Yeah thats what mine is also a week 39.

    I thought I read that apple pulled the macbooks when they discovered what was wrong with them and switched in the new parts. I was wondering if maybe thats what yours was and when they took it apart maybe they scratched it. I don't even know if they did pull them back and fix them or not but a replacement apple sent me from week 33 had 3 sets of seals on it 2 of which had been cut making me think they pulled it apart. I didn't even open that up and sent it right back But a week 39 wouldn't have had that happen.

    I would call them asap or if you're near an apple store stop in. My week 39 has a small little scratch over by the directional arrows and a shiny spot where the nub from the screen bezel touches the top case. maybe they got really sloppy in week 39. If I was near an apple store I would try to go in and get a replacement as those two flaws annoy me even though they are small.

    Are you located near a store? Just ask them to change it. You paid money for a new one that you can put your own pencil marks on; you don't want someone else's pencil marks on it! GRRR.

    I don't know about the others, but my spacebar queaked for a while, but after a fair amount of use the squaking went away. For your other problems though, I might head off to an apple store or call them...

    where can info be found to find out the week build of your MBP.

    Is there a list of serials and corresponding week builds somewhere?

    A friend has bought a friend a has just ordered a MBP and wants to know when it was built.

    No. It was bought brand new from the online Apple Store.

    There have been loads of problems with the order - so I've been given a free Brenthaven bag, £40 store credit, and a free version of iWork.

    I might call them once I get the bag and then play hell - or just buy a Magic Eraser and see how it works. :eek:

    (Sadly, I don't live near a store, and need it for school badly!)
