    Hey, I been lurking these forums for awhile and I have my first question.

    I know a lot of macbooks have this cosmetic problem. For me I would just like to know if this looks like a normal alignment problem or is this worse and should be taken back.

    I recently just bought this notebook. It is the 2.16 C2D Macbook. It isn't that big of a deal for me but when I happen to look at it.... it makes me question it a little if this is exceeding a normal cosmetic problem.

    If anything, my Blackbooks battery is the opposite of yours. I would definitely request another battery if I were you.

    Thanks guys, I will take it in first thing tomorrow morning. It is like 20-25 days old. Think they will exchange it without a question.

    They should...if the store doesn't, come home and call AppleCare. They seem to be a little nicer with replacements from my experience.

    I am going to go take it back right now, hopefully they will replace the battery with little to no hassle at all.

    it's not that the battery isn't flush, it's just the plastic is just peeling away from the battery housing. Mine is doing that on both ends - unfortunately I am out of Applecare so I will need to reglue mine as some point.

    just return it to the store and ask for replacement,
    it is a defective battery and it is dangerous from what I learned from internet.

    Some people get their mb/mbp blasted because of defective battery..

    Depends on how many times you want to go to that same store :D

    Clarification : Bring the whole machine, it may be something wrong with it which causes the battery to stick out.
