    I think that was mainly in the last generation, although i'm not completely certain. I have an old blackbook and it has palm rest cracking; Apple will fix this for free, no questions asked.

    Time? Depends on how extensively you use the computer, the pressure you put on the palm rest, and if you're going to get them at all.

    Mine is from 08 and is still going strong, never had any problems with it.

    I think you're making this into a bigger problem than it is. They don't just crack magically, if you put enough pressure there for a long period of time, you raise the chances but people's MBs aren't just cracking left and right.

    But no, a crack will not affect the performance of the machine.
