I noticed a crack on the bottom half of my macbook yesterday. I am not sure when or how it happened, which is a concern in itself, but not one that concerns anything but my own sanity... The crack is peeling, and is to the right of the mousepad. Unfortunately, it is right below where my right wrist rests while I am typing, so I am sure it will peel off completely if not fixed pronto. Can anyone suggest the best course of action? Simple Krazy Glue? Or send it in? If it is outside of the original purchasing warranty does anyone know if it is an easy (read: inexpensive) fix?

I am not exactly sure when I bought it. I am 98% sure it hasn't been 3 years yet, but I don't know if/ where I have my receipt... will they be able to look up that information, do you know?

Stupid Question?

This may be (ok... I'm sure it is) a stupid question... and it is a two-part-stupid-question....
a) how do I PM?
b) where do I find the Serial #?
First day on ehmac.ca...not my first day on a mac....
Thanks for all of your help!

Click on the username beside each person's post, and you have the option to send them a private message.

The serial number can be found in the About this Mac window (Apple menu -> About this Mac), then click on the More Info button. It'll be the second line from the bottom.

I also discovered somewhere, that you can gain quick access to the serial number by clicking on the Apple->About this Mac->then click twice on The version number, (right under the large black "Mac OS X" label.
Until I found this I always used the method John Clay suggested.

I had mine repaired. Although I was within my warranty, the apple store rep said as long as it didn't look like it was caused by mistreatment, they'd repair it, even out of warranty.

Mine was repaired while I waited (and had lunch = 2hours).

if you're close to an apple store you can make an appointment for them to have a look at it (and potentially fix it). if they do repair it you're looking at a couple of days turn around (usually)

Apple Canada - Apple Retail Store - Genius Bar

Thanks everyone, for your help on this one. I am actually heading to Vancouver for the weekend and I have an appointment at the Genius Bar on Saturday, so as long as they have the part in stock... I should have it fixed while I am there.

Apple always takes good care of its customers, I brought my sisters laptop in last Thursday after work to have the track pad fixed under Apple Care. They had the computer fixed and ready the next morning at opening and even cleaned it for us, it looks like new!
