    I recently noticed that my macbook case has a very small crack one the bottom right by the hinge.

    Its not a very big crack but i think i should do something about it incase it gets bigger and becomes an actual problem.

    My question is wether this is covered by apple warranty or if i should send it to a 3rd party company to get a new casing?

    I've only had my MB since X-Mas.
    I'll post a pic in a little bit once i grab my camera.

    whoa, that s pretty big, im thinkin that if you take it to the :apple: store they won t believe you that you did not drop it, you can try it anyways, maybe even a couple of stores...

    i forgot to mention that the crack in the picture looks a lot bigger than it really is, because of how the camera is zoomed in so far, it was kind of hard to get it to show up in a picture.

    And no i didn't drop it, but i guess i could have allways been more gentle with my MB

    This article talks about cracking around the trackpad though, my crack is beside the hinge on the underside, and kind of runs paralell to the hinge
