    i just noticed today that the front right side of my SR mbp is curved downwards. i have no idea how in the world this happened, does anyone else have this problem? is this something that applecare would take care of? there are no other signs of physical damage on front, top, bottom, or side. very strange...

    Note: i placed it on game case to highlight the problem, i don't usually use my mbp like this.

    I've seen bends, but that's pretty intense!

    I don't think I've seen one that's that bent.

    Wow - that is bent - are you sure it's not a fisheye effect from the camera? :confused:

    Dude, if it doesn't affect your computer in ways other than esthetics then I strongly recommend not worrying about it. If it does affect things then take it in if its under warranty. You have AppleCare?

    The reason I say this is there's been horror stories of people getting picky over bends & stuff....returning their comp for a replacement & basically opening Pandora's Box....wishing they had just lived w/ their original. Food for thought.

    Yes but those reports were for the bent lid, this is something else!
    I've never seen the bottom bent like that...
    Plus I'd stick to the principle that if you pay 2 grands for a machine it has to be near perfect, at least assembly-wise.
    If people never reports problems nothing will ever be solved.

    yeah, definitely something to think about, cause other than this, it's a great machine. but yeah, it's a pretty exp machine and the curvature on this is pretty severe...yes, i did purchase applecare thankfully so i should get it checked out.

    but now i'm wondering if i should wait till the new mbp's come out before i take it in? :p
