    Not sure exactly what has happened here.

    But this is a MacBook Unibody late 2009. The base which is screwed on.

    It just seems to of warped out.

    Anyone seen this before?

    Ahh.

    Thank goodness someone else has had this problem.

    Ive got a genius bar appointment on saturday, but surely they will just tell me to come back in at another time when the part is ordered rather than taking the laptop off me?

    That is the new macbook so they should have that part already in stock. If not you could just leave the laptop there for a couple of days. When I had to get my logic board replaced it took 2 days of waiting.

    Not bad at all...

    When I saw that, that totally convinced me to go with the Macbook Pro. I hope Apple fixes that soon because it is a nice laptop :)

    Oh well, cracking palm rest or bubbly bottom?
