    Nevermind! I found it!! The "r" got STUCK inside the MagSafe (an unintentional benefit of the MagSafe adaptor, I think!!!!) --- eventually managed to retrieve it with a bit of tape, and then stuck it back onto the MacBook Pro with the clear plastic that holds the replacement battery!

    This was where the "R" was hiding: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mintchocicecream/486484195/

    1. the letter "r" inlay fell off for some reason (after a year of use)

    2. i thought i lost the "r" forever... =( and actually called up applecare to see if they can offer a replacement (they said no, but said might want to look on the website for cleaning instructions to make sure i wasn't cleaning the macbook pro wrongly)

    3. interestingly i found the "r" stuck to the magsafe -- and got my "r" back!!! =)

    Wow talk about lucky! I would've thought they were painted on, not actual inlaid metal letters.
