    All you can do is ask and present your case (no pun intended)

    I read that apple was fixing these for people even if out of warranty, but someone posted they were done with that.

    As macdawg said, just take it in. If that doesn't work, put a palm rest cover over it.

    God, reading some of these posts about all of these cracks is awful. I hope all of you that have these cracks get them repaired. I bought the newest Macbook (my first mac!) last Monday & reading these after I bought it makes me worry about the future of my notebook...

    The common cracking issue found with the older generations of polycarbonate Macbooks should have been eradicated with the introduction of the new unibody plastic Macbooks.

    They will replace the top case, no real questions asked. They won't replace the computer though.

    They will replace the top case (palmrests, keyboard, trackpad, and surrounding areas) and the display bezel. They will not give you a new MacBook, as these are simply cosmetic issues that do not impede the functionality of the laptop.
