I got my refurb white macbook in Wednesday. When I opened it up, there was already a 2-3 mm depression in the casing where the magnet hits. After reading about all of the casing issues, I decided that it is not worth taking the chance on having it crack if it is already weak at day 1. I called Applecare and they are refunding all of my money. I now have to decide if I can live w/o FW and order the aluminum MB or wait until I have the money for a MBP or a new camcorder and alum MB. I am disappointed as I thought this was going to be the perfect solution. My wife has a refurb MBP that works great, so I don't think it is a refurb problem, but more of a plastic case problem. What stinks is that I had already ordered 4 GB of ram to upgrade that I will have to pay to return.
