    I was curious if a stress/pressure crack would be covered under apple care. This computer has never been opened but i looked on the side and where the screw is located it has cracked. I attached a Picture. Let me know your thoughts..

    Thanks

    Can't hurt to try it...they are usually pretty good about repairs.

    The bottom case will get replaced by Applecare. Those stress marks are pretty common in the white macbooks. I had mine replaced twice before I switched to the Aluminum design.

    There appears to be something else going on with your Mac - the deck is bowed up near the crack.

    Ouch, that looks bad. Get it to the Apple store immediately.

    Apple has been repairing white MB's with cracks even when out of the
    official warranty period. Just take it in to a store.

    They'll replace it, some people around here have even said they can do it in-store in a couple hours.

    I was just looking at that. Although Apple acknowledged the stress cracks on the white/black MacBook's, that looks like something happened to your MacBook - almost like it was dropped or something. Hopefully Apple will look past that and just perform the repair for you.
