Last week I received my new MacBook Pro after my old one was stolen. It’s my first Unibody MacBook and the design is stunning. Unfortunately function follows design.
This causes in a sharp edge of the case – just in front of the keyboard. So I decided to “mod” my macbook case by rounding the sharp edge with a file. I started with fixing the MacBook carefully with two clamps and a piece of wood:
Then I started to file the edge with a fine metal file. You can see the file laying in front of the Touchpad. After filing the edge I polished it with a polish lath:
And here is the result:
The filed edge is nearly invisible and I’m able to use the keyboard without an aching wrist.
Now my MacBook is perfect…
