    there are palmguards, like moshi. i make do with putting some clear tape on the edges.

    for those who had their cases replaced, how long did it take?

    mine was supposed to be 4 days only.

    i went there sunday, then they texted me that the topcase has arrived already (around wednesday afternoon), but since i'm kind of busy with my school work, i went there sunday (4 days after) then they fixed it for no more than 20 minutes i think. Thanks to Sir Emil!

    very nice service you got there....
