    Hi,

    Three months after I posted my problem here. Apple replaced the upper case with New one, because of another problem which is My trackpad not recognized any click, but tap works. A 10 months later, i noticed the "Aging" body appear again, and also my trackpad not recognized any click anymore . I planned next month, to repair this machine. hopefully apple will replace the upper case again.

    I always worried, what caused this thing happen every year. . ?, I don't have time to handle same problem for the every year. it just not worth it.

    thats pretty bad, but nothing compared to my original MBPs ware ;)

    it sucks that it rubs off eventually :(

    get a case for it?

    Maybe it was the hardshell that caused the rubbing? Does the shell cover that area or do you rest your palms/wrists there alot? If it's the shell you may get some "reparations". (rice krispie treats maybe)

    Nice Family Guy reference there.

    That's some odd looking wear. The only way I could see the incase shell causing that is if something got trapped in that little gap at the edge that was corrosive.

    That's kind of unusual. I've still got a near two year old MBA that's been used heavily by me and now someone else and it doesn't exhibit any signs of pitting or corrosion. I thought that went out with the PB's.:confused:

    Could it be caused by the incase?

    I've read reports about incase scratching MBPs in the past, not sure if that's still an issue (or was a major problem to begin with)

    Are u wearing a watch or bracelet? Maybe that would cause the wear...

    I know I always remove my bracelet when I use my MBP.

    I'm pretty sure it's because of your incase. Considering the fact that you take it off when you come home. Assuming you come home quite often. ;)

    i think not incase, because the left side still normal, and this happen only at right side. :(

    It doesn't clean off with anything? If it doesn't, I'd clean any & all marks from the incase and take it to Mr. Apple.

    If it's purely from your body you've got a real problem.
