    I know, this may sound weird, but it is true. I was walking to another room while holding my MacBook (it was open). Then, all of a sudden I heard a pop. I set my Mac down and noticed a dent near the track pad. Would Apple Care cover this? I cannot believe the aluminum would dent after holding the MacBook a certain way...

    "Avoid holding it in that way." :rolleyes:

    In all seriousness, I'm not sure. They might just consider it accidental damage; if you're a one-off case I can't see you convincing them it's an inherent flaw. If you'll be near an Apple store it's worth a try.

    How strong is your grip? :eek: :D
    I don't think apple care would cover this, they would probably say 'you caused it'

    I was thinking more like Lenny from Of Mice and Men, but that works perfect!

    HAHA I'm loving the jokes. BUT this is true. I have no idea how it happened. It's not a huge dent or anything...

    I don't doubt it. Perhaps your shell just had a slight imperfection in it and you hit it in the right spot. I've seen crazier things happen.
