    I dont know what happened to it. All the sudden I was moving my hand and felt something poke me, looked down and this was the result. I dont know if resting my hand over it did it, or i slammed it to hard or something. i have had my macbook since August 2008. First issue I have had with it. What should I do next, and does Apple even fix a problem like this?

    Apple might replace the top case for you...but it depends on whether they think that it is user damage or not.

    Your Macbook will be replaced depending on the Apple Employee. During the course of the White Macbook's life, the palmrest is always breaking. This is most likely a defect and Apple will most likely exchange the Macbook or Palmrest.

    Same thing happened to me. Took into the store and they replaced it no questions asked free of charge. It's a well known problem.

    Do they replace the whole laptop or just the part?

    They replace the top case, even if it's out of warranty.
