    Hey guys, i just noticed a funny issue with my new 17 inch PB.

    So im typing on it now on a flat surface, and the front left corner of the PB is up about 3 mm from the surface of the desk. I know that its probably because of the heat prooduced by the HDD, which is also in the front on the left hand side, but should I make a big deal about this to Apple? I dont know whether to be worried or not. I do know that as I'm typing, if i push down on the front left corner, the PB does teeter slightly. All 4 of the little rubber footsies are there, but the thing does kinda shake when i type. Has anyone else ever seen this on their PB? Should I call Apple?

    I would call Apple - my PB 17 has no problem like this - if it did I'd have AppleCare take care of it. you paid too much to have a wobbly laptop.

    The thing is only three weeks old...I dont get it. I dont subject it to any terrible conditions, so maybe I am just now noticing a problem that has been around since day one. Ill call Apple and post what they say about it. Thanks for the help.

    that's a documented problem and you should get a replacement easily.
