    So i got one. But when i close the lid it closes where the magnets are but inbetween it kind of bends a bit. Is this normal.

    I think the middle is supposed to have a magnet too? It seems as if there's nothing trying to connect the lid to the computer.

    No there isn't supposed to be a magnet in the middle, but that bend also shouldn't be there (at least it isn't in mine).

    just get a new one...i would. that's definitely not normal and you paid so much for it that it should be perfect. they should exchange that no questions asked.

    I got it offline, but its stock. I exchanged, about to open the new one. Almost got the black one, but stuck with white. Lexus, what do you do with so many mb's?

    I know the PB/MBPs have "the smile," which curves up from the middle out.
    This is more like "the frown," and as such, I have no idea what else to say about it. :p

    As others have mentioned it should sit flush and straight across. I just closed mine and it does. Yours is not the way it should be. Get it replaced.
