    Has anybody had any issues with the unibody shell on the 13" MBA flexing/warping? I have just sold my 13" as carrying it everyday made me paranoid that with it being so thin/flexy it would eventually cause warping damage to its shell. I have decided on the 11" instead, I tried bending a 13" and an 11" at my local Mac reseller and the 11" seemed rather rigid but the 13" definitely had some flex in it. Interested in hearing everyones thoughts.

    He was too busy gobbing a greasy burger [it was dripping lard all over/into his Apple bluetooth keyboard - made me kinda nauseous] to even notice what the hell was going on.

    I think it's more flexible, rather than bendable.

    I have had mine compressed against many things in the bag and actually dropped the bag multiple times over the past few months, but so far so good.

    If anything, a hard body would indicate that it'll crack easily rather than simply bend.

    the 13" is larger and has the same thickness case, I believe. So, it makes sense that it would flex a little more. I doubt it much of a cause for concern, though, because it is so light that I doubt it would flex much under its own weight.
