    I just opened my macbook pro just for fun and i found out that the fans are almost in the middle part of the macbook. Also, the bottom part of the macbook seems to bend a lot and doesn't feel thick enough (thats what she said). Could this mean that if, because the fans are in the middle, i pick up my macbook from the middle, i accidentally bend the bottom, making i touch with the fans?

    A lot of effort placed there. :sigh:

    I doubt you'll bend it as for the bottom to bend inward, the sides have to go the opposite direction, unless you hit it in one spot and deform the plate. The bottom plate isn't going to deform by you lifting it.

    But the answer is No.

    Theres small legs that support the middle of the plate to the casing if you care to look.

    Even if the bottom case touches the fans, they are enclosed in a duct which covers the blades.

    Don't you think that being a mobile device, the designers at apple figured out that you will eventually grab it from the bottom?
