    I am having a huge bending issues with my mbp. It seems as if the middle of the computer, where the trackpad is hits the desk, but then the sides where the rubber bumpers are are still elevated. I know I am being really meticulous and annoying about this, but it is becoming a pet peeve of mine that my notebooks' screen does not shut flush with the rest of the computer because it has a small semi-circular hole in the middle of it!

    Any solutions? I don't want to unbend it though, because it will cause metal fatigue.

    put a heavy book on it when you are not using it. That will gently put pressure on it over time.

    Are you talking about the screen when closed?

    It's not that the MBP is too thin (impossible!), it's just that you have a warped case. Apple should replace it if you ask.

    The structure of the MBP shouldn't bend unless put under **SIGNIFICANT** amounts of pressure, something which I'm pretty sure it'd be very hard to do. Pictures would be immensely helpful in this thread, so we can see exactly what is happening (kinda want to see it to beleive it). If it really is bent, and you haven't, like dropped it or anything, take it to apple.

    Yes, this is a defect! I have had two MacBook Pros and both have had warped bottom cases (near the middle). I sent both back and have given up at this point. I'd wait until the next Rev. We have three older MacBook Pros at work and they all are perfectly straight across the bottom. This Rev is obviously f-d up!

    I am curious as the amount of the gap at each corner. I just bought a refurb 15" MBP last month, and I noticed that the corners don't close as tightly as the area around the latch. The gap on mine is maybe a millimeter more than the center at each side when latched, which I don't like, but didn't think it was a big deal.

    More, please!

    Yes... take it back to Apple. If the MBP rests on the center and the feet on the corners are not touching the desk as you describe, it's definately not according to spec. Did you get yours delivered like this or did this happen whilst in your care?

    Ooops. I misunderstood - I thought they were talking about the gap between the display and the case - not the bottom of the case itself.

    Sorry.
