    You are a very sensitive guy. The edges are neither sharp nor dangerous.

    depending on how you lay your wrists on the edge, it can be uncomfortable. There are many times when they leave imprints on my wrists.

    ... and wasting our time!

    If it is too uncomfortable, take it back.

    Get an older MacBook Pro. Oh wait, you would then probably complain about losing arm hair.

    "Razor edge on new MBP"...Are you for real?

    Someone had suggested that Microsoft has been paying kids to come here to post BS, as part of their $300-million ad campaign. I would not be surprised!

    PS

    I apologize for having written harshly to you, but some of the complaints about the new MacBook Pro are unbelievable.

    I find the sharp edge below the trackpad to be uncomfortable and abrasive when I'm doing a lot of work with the trackpad. It doesn't bother me when I'm keyboarding. I've had numerous laptops with trackpads, and this is the first one that ever bothered me this way.

    Sorry, but I too am having the same problem with the sharp edge. It was such a sharp edge to me that I actually had to take a small file and dull down the edge a bit. Kind of annoying for such an expensive piece of equipment.

    Congratulations, you have just voided your warranty, ruined the anodized protection on your notebook, and given up any credible chance of selling your computer in the future. Watch how fast your exterior deteriorates now.

    Of all the things to do to your MacBook Pro, you have taken a file to it. Wow!

    Has anyone heard of an external keyboard? Apple makes good ones.

    If it had bothered you to that degree, and you had not wanted to return it, you could have bought an external keyboard for goodness sake!

    LukeD please calm down they are entitled to their opinions. They can also do what they want with their macbook's. Stop bashing other people for not having the same opinion as you.

    I agree. People should be allowed to state their opinions without being attacked. Attacking someone is so overrated. We need to help each other out...even if it is only through the holiday season...joking.

    Hopsdaballa04, my last post has not "bashed" anyone.

    If you want to give users the impression that it is acceptable to file down a MacBook Pro, be my guest.

    I have just given three main reasons why it is a bad idea.

    Of course it is acceptable to file down a MBP. He bought it, he can do what he wants with it. If he wanted to pour syrup on it and drop it in a lake that would be acceptable too. It may not be acceptable to you, but then you just will not do that with yours. He bought it though and can do anything he likes with it.

    Did the filing down help? I too mentioned this issue and got ***** slapped by our buddy Luke, who needs to serously chill and accept that Apple may have a design flaw here.

    If there are any other suggestions as to what to do I would appreciate hearing them. It is not like the edge is not finished, it is just not radiused enough.
