    I recently got a Macbook(The one with the Aluminum unibody) and everything was going fine until my mom hassled me to find something to cover my Macbook. My macbook resides near a window and I never heard of cases where sun rays would cause damage to either the Aluminum unibody or to the internal hardwares.

    Well if you're putting it in direct sunlight your machine is going to heat up pretty quickly. Why not move it to the shade?

    Sunlight can't damage aluminium!! Are you sure that's why she wants you to move it away from the window? Maybe its actually because if its on display in the window, thieves might see it?

    Some storm doors are anodised aluminum. They can get a little corroded and dull-looking over the years, but I never heard of sun damaging them.
