.....and it didn't cost a thing. Which is nice! So, here's the deal. My MacBook started showing signs of cracking a few weeks back, the usual story with the magnets breaking the top case, so I wandered into my local Apple store to see about it being replaced. It's a little more than a year old but they guy behind the desk nattered about how it was a common problem and, although it would take a week, it would certainly fall under the guarantee still. Yesterday I picked up my MacBook. Not only had they changed the deck around the keyboard they had also replaced the entire bottom case. When I got it home and all booted up the Updater kicked in to tell me that the 'Keyboard Firmware' needed to be updated?! I had always had the impression that when they replaced the deck around the keyboard that it was just a piece of plastic. But....oooh sorry, bad English to start a sentence with 'but'......but anyway, it appears that the entire top deck including the keyboard and trackpad have been replaced! Is this a common place occurrence? or have I just totally 'lucked out' this time? Either way...I'm one satisfied customer!
