    So those black things on the bottom of the MBP...
    What are they called, and were can i get some new once?

    Those i have is coming lose and it annoys me a lot.
    Are there any of you there have any experience with dealing with them?

    I have tried asking around on a danish forum, but didn't get any good answer there.

    So help spread some light over this matter, so i can see what i can do about it

    Sincerely Schranke

    Ahh the rubber feet... this problem is quite common if you search on google,
    I would take it to the nearest apple store, I think its free of charge?

    I have taken a look at ifixit.com and was surprised that they don't sell just the feet.
    Have you ever thought of buying something like a speck case or some sort to replace the feet unit?

    These are for the 15 inch MBP but they should fit any size.

    Is it under warranty? If so, the Apple Store will be happy to replace them ;)

    wow I didn't know apple was offering a fix for this problem. one of the rubber feet fell off of my macbook pro and the bottom case is scratched to hell because of the missing rubber feet. guess i'll bring this to an apple store and have it fixed before i sell it

    edit: aw this is only for MacBooks... damn got my hopes up.

    Why not? Anyone who finds this thread via Google now has an answer to their question. Seems very helpful to me. What are you confused about.

    OK, point taken, but it seems pretty obvious to me that they're called 'feet', similar to the 'legs' of a table, and that a quick Google search will provide answers, including websites from which to buy them. :eek:

    I guess it might not be so obvious to some...
