    I've read several times that there are known problems with the white Macbooks cracking and that's the main reason I decided to buy AppleCare but are there specific areas of the Macbook where these cracks are considered a common problem?

    I have just noticed a crack about 1-2 inches long on the bottom under the left hinge (by the rubber foot) and the Macbook has never been dropped/knocked/etc. I am wondering if Apple will repair it.

    You won't know for sure until you go to apple. Asking a bunch of people at macrumors won't get you a definite answer. ;)

    Just take it in or call Applecare and explain, they'll probably replace the case because it is a known defect unless there is other damage showing mistreatment.



    No , but sometimes it just helps to talk with other users before contacting Apple.
    Most of the members are here to help and offer advice alongside the fun of the 'rumor'.

    Common places where I noticed cracks: bottom edge of the palm rest where the plastic strip from the display makes contact.

    Bottom of the Macbook, close to the exhaust vents.
