    You can get it replaced if you go to the apple store.

    However, it will happen again.

    This closes through the use of magnets. It snaps shut. On the frame bezel itself there's these two very fine horizontal protruding pieces of plastic.

    It slams with the powerful magnet and has the effect of a hammer on the palmrest.

    You can have it replaced, but it will just happen again, and again, and again.

    Yes. No functional harm will come to the machine.

    Close your lid gently - placing the fingers of each hand on the corners until the magnets take hold. You can't slam it shut like I've seen so many people do.
