I've had my white plastic Apple laptop for 1 month and 1 year, and I"m already having pieces of the plastic chip off the laptop! I have tape on both sides holding the plastic parts in place. I'm so pissed!
I previously had a titanium iBook (I think?), and I had no problems with it, but the keyboard and the hardrive went belly-up. So now I have a white MacBook with a plastic casing. When I bought it, I thought nothing of the metal vs. plastic issue.
Now I wish I had! The plastic on it keeps splintering off and I've now taped it together.
Has anyone else had this experience? Do those plastic shell / casing things to protect the laptop work? Would repairing / replacing the splintering case be covered by warranty? Will I be fighting against this throughout the lifetime of the computer, and should I consider just upgrading again back to a metal laptop?
