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.

Well they were knew they were doing it, so that's ok... (?)
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...
