    Take a look at this photo and tell me what's wrong...

    Yep. Third time since I've had it. Beginning to get ticked off now.

    I wouldn't mind so much if it was used on the move, but it sits on my desk. It's not mistreated whatsoever! :mad:

    I have three of those cracks, two on the top and one exactly where yours is, I just superglued it and it's fine now.

    Is it time for you to get a replacement or you're not entitled yet?
    I've had many iPhones cracking/other issues, and I've been offered a full refund after 7 months of use.. trying to get it exchanged again, kinda feel like I'll give up and accept any flaw now..

    It's a design flaw so they should do something. If they don't, I'm going to kick up one hell of a fuss. My dell laptop has been battered around and nothings' fallen off yet! :p

    Do you have AppleCare? If so, then you're fine. If not, you are probably out of luck but you it is worth a try anyway. You may get a sympathetic Genius who is willing to make an exception. It's happened for me with my old WhiteBook- I got a replacement battery well out of warranty. Good Luck.

    Even if you don't have AppleCare I'm almost positive they will replace it. If you get a Genius that says they won't, put up a huge fuss. That's B.S. That is a design flaw and should be covered with or without AppleCare. But like I said, I think you'll be fine either way.

    On the bright side, at least the whole wrist rest / keyboard / trackpad area will look like new after they replace it! They've had to replace mine twice so far due to the cracking, and while it's such a pain leaving it at the Apple Store, getting it back in the like-new condition is pretty nice. :eek:

    If you look at the picture, you should see 2 lines. The outter line represents the case, the inner (faint) line is the nasty crack in the case.

    Just take it in. I read in many places that Apple will fix them out of warranty.
