    Check for any physical deformation cracks on the outer body- if not, then you should be fine.

    Do check to make sure that your audio, video, disk drives are all functioning properly.

    if it makes you feel any better I toss around and drop my macbook all the time while it's in the incase (without backpack). It has been running fine for a year now. You just get your macbok?

    ive been using it now actually...i just watch an hour long dvd...everything seems to be working fine...audio, dvd superdrive etc.....

    a concern though, i was inspecting my whole macbook and ive noticed that the left side of the palmrest cover...it sicking up a bit...like a milimetre more than the right side...
    not sure how to explain this well, but this is the top casing where the keyboard and trackpad is...

    i know its not a big deal...but i can tell it is not level compared to the other side...

    this was a refurb..so it couldve been like that when i got (since maybe they mite have had to open the macbook up)...

    its not a biggy but im just very cautious and paranoid of my stuff...

    u guys think im okay? or do u guys have the exact same thing

    Maybe show us a photo? That way others can check theirs and see if they are the same.
