    Did you try just getting an exchange from newegg since you just bought it?

    Yeah. I'd consider getting one if it didn't make me look like a pretentious douchebag.

    The only people I know who have a mac and aren't douchebags are the people on these forums. A little hyperbole sure, but damn. It's like they're proud to pay 2-3x more for something that does the same thing... but then there's you guys, whose opinions I respect... I don't know how to feel about it. One thing I do know is that I hate proprietary hardware.

    well in reality the only thing in a mac made by apple is.......is there anything in it made by apple? the ram is samsung, hard drive is hitatchi, logic board is foxxcon, superdrive is lite-on, airport card is netgear or cisco i think, maybe the case is made by apple?

    no ali, i havnt really thought about returning it to newegg, you think that they would take it now that i have had it serviced by apple?

    so i finally went up to the apple store and one of the people in the orange shirts (specialist?) sat there at one of the tables and closed the case for me, apologized about it being gapped in the first place and gave me a 25$ store credit or itunes credit

    Well, all's well that ends well I guess. I hope they cock slap the guy who didn't put the case back together properly.
