Hello All! I'm a brand-spanking new forum member, especially for this question. I've recently (read: today) noticed small cracks and damage to the plastic of the palm-rest on my Feb2008 Macbook. As the pictures below show, it's above the sleep light & IR, and a small piece has now actually broken off. Damage is evident on the lefthand side of the rest too, and it's presumably being caused by the little raised bar-like protrusions on the lid that stop it closing completely. My question: Is this worth trying to get dealt with on the warranty? I infrequently close the lid, and so it seems surprising that they've appeared so soon. Seeing as I only bought the laptop on Feb 27th it's well within warranty, and I wouldn't count this as plain wear&tear, would you? Also, how should I do it? Phone / Email? or just take it in? And finally, assuming they do, how do you think they'll deal with it? Thanks for your help. GJB.
