Just a random inquiry but I figure there must be a reason why the FaceTime cam isn't centered vertically, on the 13" at least. As far as I know, there's no sensor or obvious reason why it couldn't be centered. It doesn't bug me aesthetically, but I'm just really curious to know the reasoning.

I believe it is because the lid curves in at the top. There just isn't enough room.

Damn, you're good. That makes perfect sense. I'm mad I couldn't figure that out.
