    I've had my MBP 13" for a few weeks now and I have some basic questions regarding the hardware of the computer.

    1. The rubber sealing around the edge of the screen, are they prone to coming off? I dont know if they are glued on or wedged between the glass and the casing, just general curiosity.

    2. The HDD on the MBP, how durable are they? Not talking about shock or sudden impact but if I were to close the MBP suddenly and shake it around would it damage it?


    Thanks in advance

    1) No, this is one thing I have not seen or if I did it was so rare that I don't recall.

    2) Why the hell would you do that? The HDD is not made by Apple so it's as durable as any other HDD.

    If you ever close the MBP without shutting it down, be sure to wait for the sleep indicator to start dimming, which means the HDD has stopped spinning. Then you are safe to move it around.

    Ya once the MBP sleeps, some shaking shouldn't affect the HDD.

    If you want to shake your MBP while it's moving, buy a SSD..
