Hello, I have heard a few times people getting replacements from apple for this problem. Even customers that are out of apples 1 yr warranty or apple care. So I am just trying to see where I stand with this problem. My mac has the cracks that look like dark marks running not on the hand pad but below it where you open up the computer and a bunch of nicks near the cd port and a little pattern by a usb port. So would I be able to go to the apple store and have them replace my cracks with a new casing ect..? Sorry if this has been covered in the past.
