    Sometimes my dad carries my MacBook while it's open, and he holds it by one corner. Will this break it? I fear that it will crack, or the entire corner will come off :p

    I am guilty of doing that with my MacBook too. As long as you have a nice grip on the computer using all 5 of your fingers I don't think it should be a big deal...

    It should be strong enough not to break, but I wouldn't do it personally.

    i seriously dought that it will just break off. i do this all the time, i just make sure to have a good grip, so that i don't drop the thing. but mines has zero cracks.

    I've been doing that with my white MB for over 1.5 years and I have zero cracks.
