This morning I discovered a small hairline crack that starts from the front bottom left edge and goes all the way across to the middle of the Macbook. I am still within my one year warranty period and now definitely plan on purchasing AppleCare. 1) Will they cover this issue, since it is obvious that I had nothing to do with this crack? It isn't like the other ones where it could have been due to too much pressure from the top, this seems to be a defect in the case itself. 2) Is there any possibility that they would give me an exchange? I would definitely love to get either one of the new Macbooks, or an upgrade to a base model MacBook Pro. 3) I know others were having issues similar to this, and that a lawsuit was in effect...I guess my question is, what is the status of the lawsuit, or has there been some kind of resolution?
