    Hi I just got my first Mac back in march for college (was using a Windows XP with dell hardware:( ) but anyway, the problem is that the bottom left side of my trackpad is slightly elevated compared to the rest of it. i was wondering if this was normal? It doesn't effect the trackpad at all but it's kind of annoying. and is there anyway to fix? I know i have apple care for at least a year but i don't know if they cover something like this or if it would even be worth sending it in for. Please Help.


    Thanks,
    Zac

    Take it in, Apple will cover that in most circumstances.

    There are a couple screws on the bottom of the trackpad that might be loose.

    No, but if you can somehow find a screwdriver that fits the screw that's underneath the trackpad you can do it yourself

    if you're looking for reasons to not take it in, my advice is that you still should. doesn't seem normal, and it's pointless to wait until it could possibly become more out of the ordinary or even unusable.

    Tighten or loosen the screw to your liking.

    I wouldn't do anything about it, unless it's bothersome/unworkable. I'm guessing you don't have the right screwdrivers, so the simplest option would be to go to that apple store and bring it in for repair, which will result in you using you're 'crappy' dell for multiple days ;).

    If it works, why would you 'fix' anything?

    I think you could just wait it out and see if you can get by without fixing it. However I'd at least go and get it fixed by Apple before your Apple Care is up
