Screen Side "Aluminum Clam Shell" Delaminating
Screen side "Aluminum Clam Shell" (w/white logo in center) delaminating from screen and inside structure along hinge edge.
When closing the MacBook the leverage against the hinge resistance forces a gap to open all along the seem where the aluminum shell meets the screen / hinge structure. It does not look like anything is broken just that it is separating and flexing open. I think I might even be able to see a "glue" patch that has let go.
This is actually a big problem as every time the laptop is closed the hinge resistance forces this gap to open (further?) and it is very difficult to minimize this effect. Making the machine unusable for fear of further damage.
Anyone recognize this problem? Have a solution?
The machine is out of warranty...
Update: Apple store will repair as it i an obvious defect.
