    The first problem I noticed was the slight cracking on the hinges, this bothers me but is not too bad. The second problem is the cracking at the front of the computer under the lip used to lift the screen. The last problem and the most annoying of the three is the soft plastic bottom has almost come off completely. It started of with just the little bit at the front but once that stopped it started around the sides. It all began with a bubble under the plastic near the edge, about the size of a large coin.

    Is anyone else having any of these problems? I know the hinge cracking is common. But any of the other? I love my mac and treat it like a loved child but I am having trouble cosmetically.

    Should still be under warranty, right?

    Where did you purchase it? Is there an Apple Store close by?
    Take it in to an Apple Store and have them look at it

    How long have you got it? If its still under the one year and you haven't got applecare, take it to the genius bar in an ambulance if you will.

    If you say it's a 2010 then its obviously still under warranty which that will cover it. Take it to the genius bar and the should take care of you. :)
