    Hi all, I've had my Macbook for 12-13 months now, and it now has a crack in it. It is just a general wear and tear crack from where my right wrist sits on the Macbook when it's sitting on my desk. Sometimes when I bring my hand back from the macbook it sometimes catches the crack and is quite irritating, and also just detracts from the aesthetics of it.
    I've had it for more than 12 months so its no longer covered by Apple's 1-year warranty period, but does anyone have any idea on how much getting this repaired would cost?
    Here is a photo of the crack:

    If you search there is a mega long post with a lot people having the same problem.

    Don't mean to sound smug but thats the main reason why i waited until the new MB's came out.
