Disappointed with 5 Day Used Yellow Discoloration Macbook in Malaysia
Suppose to be happy after I bought Apple MacBook. But it turned up very very sad yet disappointed with my 5 Days old Macbook. The palm rest surface and common keyboard keys and touch pad areas have spotted yellow discoloration. Seriously, am very sad with the brand new Apple’s Macbook right now. IF I have known the problem earlier which is quiet critical and serious, I would have just buy the Black Color Macbook.
I’ve been using it for only 5 days and now it will be sending back to change the case, not swapping a new unit. So far for the informations I gathered from Forums. Most of the users having the yellow discoloration issue after 3-4 months, but mine is only 5 days. May be I am extreme user compare with others.
Just my luck… Fellow Malaysian, take my advice, please don’t buy Macbook at the moment unless you are planing to buy a Black Macbook.
The yellow discoloration will make you sadder and sadder everyday, especially when you open up your Macbook in the early morning!

Hmmm, so ugly with the “tompok-tompok”.
Thanks for sharing your experience.
Paul u watch Ham Dai izzit?
until the Mac Book so high turn color!
watch ham dai also didn’t touch the surface.
who pissed on ur notebook ?
haha.. May be those stain are caused by some liquid rather than your hand ?
alphademon, spoonfork la!
Max, yes.. how far i sit, it will also reach there.. damn.
Hmm.. maybe ur skin is acidic? The chemicals secrected from your your skin may have caused the discoloration. I read the the pH levels of our skin difers from one to another, hence you see so many brands of skin cream/ lotion/ soap catering to different skin.
Anyway, on another note, sorry to hear about the discoloration. Hope this little disappointment won’t affect your initial journey to Macdom.. hehehehe Then again, perhaps you can get one of those protection pads to protect the surface.. or you can try a little car polish.. seems to work on one of my previous iBook.
Haha, it looks like those old tilam, where babies piss on ’em.
It’s sad to have the laptop looks like this when it’s not even a week old.
Send Apple an email complaining about this maybe?
Dude, wear glove before using macbook. hehehe
yes, buying body glove..
I thought they should swap a new one? Anyway, my luck is better 😛 So sad…
Nope, they are not swapping..
i buy your macbook with RM2590, is that possible?
of course impossible 😀
Is it the heat of the DuoCore?
Or maybe just dust and dirt?
Did you try washing your hands before using?
I own a Macbook. It’s about 3 months old now, no problems. Of course to avoid discoloration I purchased a keyboard protector. Still looking for the protector for the areas beside the touch pad. Also no discoloration yet.
Btw, I heard that black macbooks get smeared with fingerprints all the time…hard to clean also. Ah well, the price to pay for design. Thanx 4 sharing anyway 😀
Mine is 8 months old. I don’t have discoloration issues like you, but I think the whiteness has gone dull all over. Or maybe it’s just me:D
What’s really pissing me off is the booting up issue that started 5 months ago. I have to press the power button at least 5 seconds or until the long ‘beep’ sound appear for my MB to startup. Sometimes it fails during the startup process.
I hope the service centre can fix my problem.
Hahahaha ……….. Then tell to Stive Jobs to product yellow coller Mac Book ………Hahahahah
