Hello macrumors, first poster here. Now for my first post I have a question: What is the point of this... (the spek seethru) when it doesn't protect my Macbook pro from this... A small dent. Or worse from this... A giant gapping hole? I bought the spek seethru because it was the only way to protect my laptop since I carry it through school a lot. A bag I bought had a protection sleeve, but I just couldn't fit my laptop in it, so left it in another compartment that was only surrounded by the outer fabric of the bag. I have been moving my bag around with the confidence of the spek protection. Over time, there were little bangs against tables and walls, sometimes I would let gravity place my bag on the ground from 1 inch up. Then came my personal Black Tuesday. I wanted to take out a folder, so I placed my laptop bag on a bench between my friends leg (he was sitting on the table) while holding the bag up with my knee. My friend, not knowing about the bag, decides to bite my other friend's shoulder as a friendly gesture. He bites, he shoves me backwards a bit, my bag looses balance, and BANG! I quickly examine my MBPro for damage and see that gapping hole. CRAP! I have tapped over that gapping hole for now to protect it from dust. Let this be a lesson...the speck seethru is not an excuse to neglect the protection of your Mac Laptops. Now I have a few questions before I go: 1. Can I continue to use my MBP with a tapped up hole (the laptop works thank God)? 2. I'm under applecare and I have a few other problems with my laptop. The audio output only sends sound to one side of an earphone and my laptop makes a buzzing noise under low display light. Will these dents give Apple a reason to pull a fast one on me and charge these under-warranty problems alongside the refurbishing of the dents? 3. How much is it going to cost to fix the casing?
