    ok so i woke up this morning and want to check my email so i went to my desk where my MBA was (MBA was on my desk) and i tried to lift up the MBA lid with my index finger. Next thing i know i heard a loud noise and noticed that my MAB was fliped upside down 180* on the table. I think i must have lifted the whole MBA front part. I check my screen for cracks or anything like that but everything looks ok. I can't believe that would happened to my two weeks old MBA...

    i just want share this with you guys so it won't happen to you guys. Becareful when you open you MBA lid next time. I guess sometimes too light weight is not so good.

    I Noticed The Same Thing

    Its such a light device, I'm really careful opening it up.....Glad you didn't damage yours.

    I guess over time it will probably loosen up a little....Mine is only three weeks old so it is quite tight.

    You must work out a lot. Recommend me a forearms exercise?

    I thought that this would be a warning against holding it at the back while opening it. That can hurt like hell if you're not careful.

    Hammer curls are good, you'll also hit the biceps that way at the same time.

    It's not an Apple commercial: Use both hands when you open up the lid.

    No need to really report this. I think anyone who purchases an MBA knows how to open it. Just be careful next time. That's all I (and everyone else can say).

    Your other option, buy a Dell. Maybe it'll open, maybe it won't. Maybe the lid will pop off. Who knows...
