    Hi,
    I just got my 11" i3 MBA for 2 days.
    Just found that it is a bit loose in the hinge.
    like the guy at this vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqNL537opSQ

    But for me it is a little tighter. I need to put the keyboard side at 90 degree before the lid collapse to its widest position.

    When I close the lid it is normal.


    Is this a normal? Or should I need to replace?
    I bought from Apple Online. There is no official Apple Store in my country.

    Mine doesn't fall like that, but then mine is a 11" with a lighter lid I suppose.

    Normal or not, I don't think if you ask a genius to adjust it tighter for you, he would refuse.

    My 2012 air was like this it did get looser over time too. My 13" 2013 doesn't budge but it is only a week old.

    Mine is also 11 inch but still have this problem.
    I am thinking about send it back for replacement.

    Because in my country there is no mac genius, NO official apple store.
