    I read this post,

    "Correct me if I'm wrong, but you have a MacBook. Not a MacBook Pro. If so, yes. They will repair it for free as it was a design flaw ont their part."

    on this thread:

    I do indeed have a macbook aluminum with the black plastic part cracked but it's out of warranty and I was wondering if anybody could verify the above statement and if its worth going to get it checked out at the apple store.

    What part of the Aluminum Unibody MacBook has black plastic, other than the keyboard keys?

    Obviously it's the clutch cover.... You can purchase one from eBay for relatively cheap using the search term "A1278 clutch cover". They're the same whether they say "pro" or not.... Use for guides on how to replace it...
