    ...Complaining about
    people complaining about sharp edges in a thread on
    sharp edges is more annoying than there being 200
    threads on sharp edges. If our reading the thread you
    are interested if you don't want to read about sharp
    edges what are you doing it for? Everybody have a
    nice day!


    I wasn't complaining.... Just expressing amazement... Didn't mean to offend.

    I called Apple Tech Support - they agree this is unacceptable and I should take it to an Apple store to be checked out. The edges of the MacBook should not be sharp (according to their tech support personnel).

    Apple has some *hitty industrial designers.. form over function seems to be what they're preaching over there. Probably bunch of overzealous ind designers over there complete with the stick in their arses. The sharp edge of the Macbook is idiotic of a design. Bring in the Bauhaus!

    The sharp edges are a design flaw. Apple should heed these complaints and correct the problem. The polemics on keyboard ergonomics miss the point; sometimes you use a laptop under less than ideal conditions, and you should not have to use sandpaper to un-sharpen these contours. We expect Macs to look good and feel good.
    I like my iBook, with the soft edges and I can wait for Apple to get it right, before buying the MacBook.
    How do you give Apple this feedback?

    Just ring up Apple support and tell them. I have done so after i'd cut myself and they seemed pretty concerned. They had passed my complaint onto level 2 Customer services and also informed the engineering dept.They need to hear people complain about this not just log their concerns on a forum. They will tell you that you are the first to call with this complaint, but I know for a fact that there are many people with same opintion. Get on the blower or there is a feedback page from the Apple website where you can express your disappointment. Do it!!
    Do It!!!!

    why are you trying to be unhelpful? if you don't agree with the opinions of this thread then stop re-posting. i have cut myself twice on my MB so i think that deserves a phonecall to apple.

    It's not a design flaw. It's a manufacturing defect on the part.

    i have been told different. the manager of my local apple store has confirmed my MB is a standard spec. not a manufacturing fault.
    you are obviously determined to have the last word so enjoy.........
