    I have a standard macbook 13" and ive found that when closing and carrying around the ridges on either side of the cam have pushed through the plastic on the bottom when they connect when closed. So i know have a line chip where its been pushed out.
    Does anyone know if theres a plastic filler or anything to fix this chip?
    Thanks Tom

    This is a known issue, see a long thread here.

    Phone up apple and they should offer to replace the part free of charge.

    2 weeks? I think that is a very conseravtive estimate, afterall this past week I took mine in to a 3rd party repair place and they took 3 working days to turn the machine around.

    Hope you get it sooner than 2 weeks. Good luck.
