    Yesterday I discovered a dent on my macbookpro lid (see picture below). I'm not quite sure whether it's a dent or not, but anyway it has annoyed me for 24 hours and i'm really mad now!

    The diameter of the shallow dent is 4cm and it is very noticeable to me. I just want to ask if this will void my warranty, or can i tell apple that the metal moved itself so that they can replace it for me?

    From the light reflection on the apple logo you can actually acknowledge that it has been dented and the surface is not flat :(

    Just deal with it. Telling Apple "the metal moved itself" is not going to work.

    Dents happen all the time to metal laptops. It does not void your warranty.

    Everyone loves the aluminum MacBook Pros but no ones wants dents, another reason to miss the MacBook.

    It shouldn't void warranty, I'd be amazed if they fix it for you.

    The metal moved itself?:rolleyes: Like do you really believe that?

    No it won't void your warranty, and no, since you either dropped it or put something heavy on it or something along those lines, Apple won't replace it for you...


    People need to own up and take responsibility for what they do, rather than always blaming it on someone else(in this case, Apple).

    Just contacted Apple fix and they asked me to bring the laptop to them and they'll see if they can flatten it out.

    Why fix it when you'll get more? It is inevitable that you'll get more dents on the corner, top, and bottom of your Macbook Pro. Just like millions of other Macbook Pro owners.

    You're right. Perhaps i should just forget it and buy a case, and cover it up.

    metal is genrally better for the build of a laptop but instead of chiping or cracking like plastic, metal can scratch and dent which looks just as bad XD

    but looks dam sexy when flawless :D

    To the OP:
    Just live with it. You'll realize in couple of months that there will be more dents, especially on the left side where the ports are located. As long as the computer is working fine, then I wouldn't send it in.
