thats not funny. my 3700 dollar computer is scratched right out of the boxIf you look at some other posts related to this, it's supposed to be that way. It helps indicate the left and right side of the computer for repair purposes.
....really?If you want it to get replaced, you'll need to wait another month. Your choice
in your case you had a second one on order, they didnt actually replace it ?Yeah my first tbMBP Silver one had the same exact scratch out of the box in right below the right speaker grill. Seems to be the two most common places for the scratches to be present: either left or right bottom speaker grill. Anyway, I returned it and luckily I already had another tbMBP that I ordered via online. No way am I going to have that staring at me for the next 5 years.
I purchased one in store (the silver base model) and I had ordered the space gray 460 radeon online. I was debating between the two. The base model had the scratch so I already knew I was going to return it once my space grey got here.in your case you had a second one on order, they didnt actually replace it ?
Is it under 14 days? got a pic?I got the scratch also on my 15" BTO,chatted with Apple they said cosmetic defects not covered under warranty and told me to go Genius Bar for them to evaluate!!!!!!what is this?expect me to accept manufacturing flaw expensive device ??
Maybe its some guy with rough fingers or something handling the computers lolI have that same exact scratch as well and there's a topic with like 15 pages on here somewhere with nearly a hundred others with the same thing. It seems to be a larger issue with production and it's hard to say whether your replacement will still have this mark or not.
I'm not sure what to do just yet - I'm not really into moving into another laptop, although I had the Boot Camp speaker bug happen which may have blown the right speaker. Ugh.
Maybe its some guy with rough fingers or something handling the computers lolReturn it. If you have an Apple Store nearby they may have your model in stock. Check daily.
Oh no, you poor baby! How will you possibly survive this tragedy?
Get over it….. use it for a bit and there will soon be a few more scratches.
I don't fault people for returning ~$3000 computers with scratches on them right out of the box. Would you find it acceptable to buy a brand new car, scratched before you drove it off the lot? I wouldn't, but to each their own.Get over it….. use it for a bit and there will soon be a few more scratches.
