Apple admits cracked Macbooks

Very expensive and perfectly-formed cracks
Thu Apr 09 2009, 13:03

APPLE HAS FINALLY ADMITTED that its technologically perfect Macbook, which inspired all other laptops since the dawn of time, which is better than any artistic work by the great masters, has... errr, cracks.


In fact, Apple admits that as the white plastic Macbooks get older they are more likely to suffer fractures.

The laptops, which first saw the light of day in 2006, can split in four different places, although Apple has been denying for years that it was a design fault. After all, the design had been blessed by Steve Jobs and could not be wrong.

Now Apple has asked its black-shirted service agents to inspect any white plastic Macbooks they receive for thin cracks and service those notebooks even if the warranty has expired, according to the report.

The white MacBook is still on sale for $999. Other notebook designs are made of aluminium which is harder to crack, apparently.

Meanwhile Apple fanboys have been flooding us with cries that Macbook cases should be cracked and in two year's time Dell will be following the trend. µ
