I just might sell my MacBook over this. How many of us honestly look at the back of our laptops? Well I did tonight and what do I see- stress cracks around the hinges, around the vents, and all along the back edge! Just look at the pictures! I'm never rough with my MacBook. It lives inside a Louis Vuitton messenger bag with a suede interior, and if it's not there, it's on my bed! It doesn't get much more comfortable that that!

This is because Apple's consumer laptops are crap. My friend's MB has the same issues.

All I get is: " Flickr is having a massage." :^)

They have quite a sense of humor, they'll get it going soon.

iBook too?

Wait. Is an iBook the same as a MacBook? (Im dialed in at 9 kbps, so i cant view the pics, takes too long) I know iBooks are made like crap whem it comes to the durability. The plastic is like that of a cd player. For something that's about 1500 dollars! But at least the insides are high quality... Smile

mine has that too, and also a crack next to the led/IR receiver. It's either the worst Mac I've ever had, or the best PC.

Clearly you have never used an IBM laptop. Tongue

I'd second that. You could just about pick up nearly any Thinkpad ever made and use it as a hammer to smash an Apple laptop (with the possible exception of the toilet seat iBooks) to pieces, and it would come out essentially unscathed. ;^)
