MacBooks becoming crackBooks?

The last time Apple had some serious machine cracking going on was way back in the Cube days (unless you want to talk about those minor incidents early on with the nanos) but here's a disturbing new one: MacBooks with exteriors starting to crack and distort the chassis under normal usage conditions. A couple of users on different forums are reporting cracks in nearly identical locations of their week 23 MacBooks, but it's still yet to be seen just how wide spread this one really is. Even after the heat and rebooting issue and the discoloration, we're still not really ready to throw in the towel on the MacBook, but we hope Apple has a solution to this one waiting in the wings.

[Thanks, Luke]
