    hi

    i had my macbook for ard 2 months alred.
    i realized that there is an expansion in the crackline behind the macbook.
    see the photos.

    is this really the quality we can expect from apple?

    will the macbook ever crack at other places?

    I had cracking in more than one Macbook in that area, and along the sides, around the vents, and along the back edges of the bottom case. I'd call Apple about it.

    I had to send mine in for service three times, specifically, for this problem, and four other times for other issues. Ultimately, this case issue caused Apple to replace my Macbook with a brand new one, which I promptly sold.

    i'm hoping my macbook won't crack anytime soon, but if anything did i'd go straight to apple about it, which is what i'd do in your shoes.

    i kinda hope it will happen in a couple of years, that way they might replace it with a brand new one :)

    I'd call Apple care. I've had mine since the end of November and it still looks brand spanking new.

    Good luck with that one, if you don't have Applecare.

    Asking nicely will get you everywhere. Just had the case replaced on a Rev A book with overnight service by a phone call.

    The case is defective, just as the Magsafe is. Replacing it (whether in warranty or not) is the least they could do.

    Yes. They're way easier to see as well.
