That sounds really unlikely?

Can you give us some more detail? Cause I might just manage to get some "natural" cracks into my macbook

I don't believe it either. I am sure I am not alone.

Cracks in the case is a known issue with the Macbooks and Apple would go no further than just replace the casing. They would not give you a new make/model unless you had the same issue SEVERAL times.

Got me interested though...

To borrow from a popular Internet meme, pics or it didn't happen.

If this turns out to be real, I've got some cracks in my Macbook I'm totally getting checked out by Apple (I should probably get those checked out anyway)

This is the first case of me hearing something like this. Usually, you'd have to have a lemon on your hands for Apple to do this.

I had cracks in my Macbook back in April 2008, got it repaired. As of now, I'm having it sent in for a second time to have the cracks repaired and have the fan checked out. There was no mention a replacement each time.

I just don't understand how your case of cracks is any different from anybody else who only just have the top keyboard casing replaced.

*baffled*

I have had defective MBP, it was smoking, I got a replacement, with all the white books they have, that is what they would send, or just fix the case...

Might as well close this thread, unless he could show some proof, pictures, receipt, invoice...etc...

I wish this were true, although I did get something like this with my Blackberry. I got my Pearl replaced 4 times through warranty, and the 5th time, I requested a BlackBerry curve....and I got it
