Apple laptop hardware is officially dead to me

This is my third MacBook wrist rest replacement. This is a picture, where you can see faint wrist rest stains after two hours of light use today. I just got my MacBook back from the repair shop.

The broken Bluetooth is fixed, and I have my new AC Adapter and Battery after the previous ones broke, but the wrist rest stains are back. Why can’t Apple fix this fucking problem? I don’t want to send in my machine every couple of weeks to get a new bit of plastic! (On the very small plus side, I get a nice new trackpad and keyboard every time they replace the wrist rests).

Please, go and vote for defective Apple MacBooks as the worst gadget of 2006 over at Engadget.
