Ugh. I noticed some discolored edges along the bezel around the keys and trackpad a few days ago, and ignored it. Well, tonight, I took a damp cloth to the entire laptop, and noticed a yellow stain that just wouldn't go away. I have staining. Currently, it's rather light, and I'm probably the only one who can notice it right off the bat. I showed my mom, and while she didn't immediately notice it, when I pointed it out, she agreed it was plain as day. This Macbook is my only computer. I have to have it for reports and essays, as well as internet. I'm really at a loss for what to do. My birthday is at the end of January. What are the odds of me being able to keep the staining unnoticable until then? If I can make it till my birthday, I could buy the iMac I was planning on getting before college a bit early. Then, when I get my new iMac, I could send in my Macbook. What is the turn-around time on these. If I drive down to the Apple Store tommorrow (Hour there, hour back), after getting an appointment, when could I expect to get it back? One week? Two weeks? A month? This is very disappointing. It hasn't steered me away from Apple, but it does put a major damper on my first Mac owning experience. I thought I did good by waiting until I could get a post-week 25 MB, but apparently that wasn't enough. And just to be sure, there is zero chance of being able to exchange this MB on the spot, correct? I just don't know what I'm gonna do without a computer... I rely on it. If it could be back by Friday, I could probably make due since it is a three-day school week. However, I have a feeling I won't see my baby back for three weeks or more. That just isn't do-able. How fast does the staining spread? Do I have a good chance of making it until late January? Or is that out of the question? Sorry for all the questions... I'm just really frustrated right now. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
