Is my ibook issue something to worry about?

Ok, I just noticed today that my trackpad on my (not quite a year old) ibook has started to bow out about 1/4" down from the top. My palm rests also seem to be ever-so-slightly warped as well. I really don't recall noticing this before. My question is this: Should I worry about this? Would applecare even look at this? (I would need to purchase it but I've been thinking of it and still have 13 days).

a photo won't show much, as it is only bowing slightly, you can feel it but it is hard to see.

Wouldn't hurt to get it looked at.

Your iBook shouldn't be warping at all.

Of course local resellers will look at it.

The more repairs they make, the more money they make on service. You're almost likely to better with them than at an Apple Store. (My combo drive is being replaced because it scratches *some discs*-no Apple Store here either.....)
