Battery not sitting properly?

Hi I have just purchased an iBook from a retail store in the UK and excitedly opened the box. However the smooth lines of the iBook are not so smooth when it comes to the battery. The battery on the right hand edge is neat and flush to the rest of the case but if you look along the front and towards where the lock is situated then the edge seems to come away from the case and be raised you could get your nail in the gap and if you run you hand on the underside then there is a definate difference between battery and case near the lock in hieght.


Is this normal? Am I looking for perfection that is too perfect? Does anyone understand what I mean?


Look forward to your thoughts

Umpf

you just may be looking for a bit too much perfection here
