    The "feet" or "coasters" or whatever you want to call them fell off the bottom of my MBP. I think the heat from the laptop melted the adhesive until they eventually came off. Only one remains.

    Anyway, I'd like to buy some extra ones and crazy glue them on. Anyone know where I can pick some up?

    Cheers,
    Matt

    If your mbp is still in warranty, just call Apple. They should be able to mail you some, unless there is an Apple store nearby. The store might have those feet in stock.

    While it was under warranty I took it into an Apple licensed repair shop (Carbon Computing) and they said Apple does not cover lost/missing feet under warranty because it's considered the users fault. Not sure why that's the case considering the heat from the laptop caused the adhesive to come loose.

    Anyway, the laptop is (as of a few days ago) no longer under warranty. Does Apple actually sell these to customers?

    Cheers,
