Listed below are links to weblogs that reference a near marketing blunder by apple:
Take a look at your MacBook Pro and you will see one of the worst design blunders Apple ever made. Their design flaw cost me over $1,000. I have used a number of Dell laptops, and their designs do not have this flaw.
Open up your MacBook Pro to about 120-130 degrees or so. Then lay your left little finger sideways into the gap between the computer and display in the area to the left of the left hinge. Then lightly swing the display toward you and feel how your finger gets compressed.
Now imagine that, unknown to the computer's owner/operator, a small object of just the right length and width had managed to slip down into that crack, and the computer's owner/operator, called to quickly pack up his computer, slammed closed the cover and heard this ominous CRACK! Upon releasing the cover and opening it, he discovered a large black area in the lower, left corner of the display and a four inch crack in the glass diagonally across the corner.
Apple would not admit responsibility for my negligence, so I had to have it replaced with a refurbished (not new) display.
