flaking paint - Mac Applications & Software

I've read stories about flaking paint on TiBooks, but how about 12" G4s? The paint on the left palmrest on my Powerbook G4 12" has been flaking--little black dots have been appearing. Anyone see anything similar? -- to respond, change "spamless.invalid" with "optonline.net" please mail OT responses only...

    I've read stories about flaking paint on TiBooks, but how about 12" G4s?

    The paint on the left palmrest on my Powerbook G4 12" has been
    flaking--little black dots have been appearing. Anyone see anything
    similar?

    Scott: 

    No, but one shouldn't be surprised. After all, painted surfaces are
    generally not intended to be touched. I mean, you would never touch the
    body of your car, e.g., right? The paint on my TiBook 667 is worn
    through completely, but I didn't even notice it until questions began
    appearing on USENET and I looked at mine.

    Another word for flaking paint is "patina." It is a condition that is
    exhibited in virtually all objects that are handled by human hands.
    Find something more important to worry about.

    Flaking paint on a 2 month old laptop shouldn't HAVE to be an issue.

    That's what warranties are for. Contact Apple.

    Did so. This'll be the 2nd time the Powerbook has been shipped to
    Apple--first time was for a warped bottom, which has warped again. I
    wonder if this is a heat-related issue.
