Hi all

I have a 17" MBP. The plastic trim that goes around the edge of the base has broken away from the computer just above the optical drive. This sometimes causes the disc that i am trying to eject from the machine to get stuck and re-insert itself.

I tried to get this fixed under warranty and they tell me that it is not covered due to it being outside of normal wear and tear.

I have another friend who bought his 15" MBP second hand who has had the same problem.

I feel this is a design fault but they are telling me that they have never heard of this problem before.

Also the anodizing is coming away from just below a number of the keys. namely the command keys and the space bar as well as the cursor control keys.

If anyone has had the same experience i would love to hear about it as I would like to get mine fixed and if possible prevent newer models having the same problem.
