    Since there's been some time,about a couple of months?, that users have been using it maybe it might be a bit premature to ask, but surely it's enough time for some problems to have at least started appearing?

    No issues at all

    I have Rev B Macbook Air 1.86/SSD. I got it in November, use it everyday for work and play and no issues whatsoever. The hinge is just as strong as it was when I took it out of the box. :)

    No loose hinge. I open and close mine several times per day.

    no slop here. However, with apple care I am really not worried if it does develop. Easy fix or replacement.

    I had the bezel replaced on my Rev A., and it came back with the left hinge being fairly loose. I didn't send it back yet because I need it right now, but the Genius Bar said I could get if fixed when needed. It is covered under Applecare.

    Can we clarify this, in the rev. as case, taht was not the case, a lot of people found thata apple would not replace or fix the issues.

    I just got a used Reb A today and it has a good bit of play in the henge. Kinda takes the shine off it and makes it seem old.

    Is there an easy fix for this? Which screws?

    Yes my Rev B 1.86 SSD is already developing slop in the hinge, exactly the same as my Rev. A. I am going to try and leave it longer between repairs this time though.
