    It's quite a common flaw. The front left rubber feet doesn't touch the surface, so the whole thing wobbles. Either the "precision" unibody isn't quite as precise it should be, or there's a problem with the assembly. Anyway, the overall problem is called poor quality control. If it bothers you, you should of course take it back. Nothing ever gets better if people accept flawed products at full price.

    I would have it exchanged if it wobbles be very hard to type or click like that.

    Mine wobbles as well

    I have not decided if I am going to return it. Has anyone else returned theirs because of this?


    After only 30 min of sitting on my table the problem seems to be auto correcting. I will repost if it does not completely go away.
