    I bought my MBP for school in mid-June and the finish is coming off on the left palm rest. It seems to be a purple-ish color underneath. Would this be covered under Applecare? I plan on calling them in the morning to see.

    EDIT: oops, please move this to the MBP forums.

    I was under the impression the case was made from solid alumninum, so it shouldn't be purple underneath. More likely something reacted with the metal casing.. I don't know what would turn it purple though.

    Give them a call. See what happens, can't hurt right?

    Yeah, that has to be a reaction of some sort. the palm rest area is entirely aluminum (though the little strip directly under the keyboard is painted plastic i believe).

    I would contact Apple and see what they say.

    Oh, and stop drinking grape kool-aid when you're using your computer. :D

    The only thing that's could ever be there would be sweat from my palm, that's about it.

    I tried calling them and was hold forever, then got disconnected. Kind of put me in a bad mood, so I'll call later.
