Be Nice to Your Mac

If you bought a MacBook before a few weeks ago when they switched to aluminum cases, be really gentle when closing it, or this will happen.

Or, I guess if you're thinking strategically, treat it crappily enough that this will happen within the first year so that they'll replace the case for free. It would've cost me $202.19 to get fixed otherwise.

  1. Zoe's did the same thing. I'd say this is likely a design/manufacturing defect. I don't think it necessarily has to do with "slamming" shut the display, it's more likely that the magnets are very strong and the little ridges on the display are simply harder and create some sort of stress on a that weak edge. Anyhow, stupid Apple quality control wins again.
