    Hi all

    I've just got a 13" MBP and I've noticed that around the middle of the bottom plate can be pressed in slightly. I can notice it most when I pick the laptop up by putting my hands underneath it and it bends inwards slightly. Does anyone else notice this on their MBPs?

    Many thanks

    Michael.

    This is unusual, if it within guarantee send it in. Best you can do.

    I did take off the bottom plate almost immediately on delivery to install an SSD so I guess the most sensible thing to do first is check the screws are fully tightened. What's surprising is just how thin the bottom plate is!

    Well I checked and the screws are fine so I think that it's just the way that it is.
