    Apple wont fix my flaking/peeling macbook. Whats next?
    So my 6 month old black macbook is flaking and peeling. I brought it to two apple stores in my area and both of them refused to fix it saying it was normal wear and tear. The situation sucks, but i have to deal with it. So what are my options? Most of the peeling parts are on the bottom casing. The tob casing with the keyboard is fine and the display casing is ok too. Can i buy a lower casing some where to replace my peeling one?? Or better yet has anyone with this same issue had any luck having apple care replace vs the geniuses at the store? I cant believe id be posting something like this after 6 months. What a bummer.

    The only thing I have heard being replaced under Warranty is the Top casing on the early MacBooks was yellowing. Those all got replaced. Not heard much about the Black one and issues like yours.
