    Hey all

    So I got my macbook from PC World (uk) in December of last year, and the rubber base has just started to come off :S

    I read that you can take it to an apple shop & get a new base put on it, but i was wondering

    1. Can I still get it done for free if i got my macbook from a shop that isnt the actual Apple store?

    2. How long will it take them to put a base on it for me?

    I havent been able to find anything else about it but if anyone knows the answer or can point me in the right direction please let me know :]

    1. Yes, you can go to any Apple Store or Apple Authorised Dealer, which offers repairs and they will take care of it. The place of purchase is not important in this case.

    2. I don't know, but it shouldn't take longer than a day if they have the part in the store and the capacity to change it there.
