My early 2008 MBP is about to be replaced with a new 2011 MBA, but I'm still wondering if any people here have experienced the horrible deteriorating palm rests like I have. They started off small, but have gradually become worse and worse. I even tried to cover it up a Sticker on the right, but it eventually came off. You can still see the outline of the Apple. I had two other friends with this model of laptop and they never had this problem. Is my sweat acidic?! lol Also, my S key is so messed up, as you can see in the attached photo, I just don't get it. I took good care of the laptop. Anyone else with wear and tear like this?
