    I believe they applied pressure to the sides and centre. As a result, the casing around the ports on one side cracked. And honestly, it doesn't surprise me - it's the same thing as Asus' UX501/G501 machines. The aluminium used is quite thin and bends without much force required. As a result, when you push it a bit harder, it can crack and break. That's what I really like about Apple's unibody designs, they are incredibly durable considering the slim profile.

    Makes me miss the old thicker aluminum panels that would just deform and then never bend back quite exactly right from previous generations.

    But those were also much harder to bend and twist in the first place ;)

    Yeah, and were heavier. I think the best solution would be some sort of composite/plastic.

    Or, you know, charge 2000$ for entry-level with macbook-like chassis :D

    Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.

    well my P34w V3 drama has got me to the point where I am seriously thinking of 'writing off' the laptop. It has made me a bit wary of 14" laptops....:(
