    This is the second time ive had a problem with my MBP casing. They replaced it along with some other problems (monitor humming) and dead pixels.

    Now I have some weird very light humming noise which stops when I type or move the track pad and my casing is bubbling up...

    out of focus and a life size picture makes it a little difficult

    Your pics are massive. No one can see it properly from that, and I'll be damned if I'm getting off this chair and standing back to see it :mamoru:

    I can actually see it. Just ribbing you for the massive pics; it's hard to see the bulge and the surrounding area to compare it to with pics that big.

    you can ask for a replacement if there has been 3 major repairs in a one year period, otherwise they will not. You also have to call appelcare, a retail store cannot replace it.
