I have an A20p that was a hand-me-down from a former employee here in 2002,
used it as my desktop machine for two years, used it as my traveling laptop
for a few after that, and it's STILL going.  When they bought me its
replacement (HP NC6220, which is okay) I took the Thinkpad home with me.

As for the MacBook discoloration, I had that happen (spent a week in bed on
doctor's orders last year, my comforter was red.. hey, the macbook's
turning red!).  Called AppleCare, they sent a box, I had a MacBook with a
new top case back in three days.
