My MBA arrived yesterday and I unpackaged everything today. I noticed some imperfections on the case/housing. It was difficult to take a picture of them but was able to capture one that should be clear for you all to view. What is seen in the picture is on the top and there is a similar area on the bottom. These areas are elevated from the case and possibly could be wiped away. I just am hesitant to try that at this point. I also count 10 minor chips on the top and bottom of the case. These are very small, but noticeable. My concern is that this is a brand new machine and eventual resale value. I obviously would have to point these out to a potential buyer in the future. I also notice that I have the hinge issue as seen in other threads. I know that a Genius can fix this issue. Compared to the other keys, the spacebar is not as firm, more wobbly than the other keys. Basically, if I move a finger back and forth on it, it rocks. I am not sure if that is typical or not. So, with all of these issues - especially the chips and the raised areas on the case - is it something that Apple would replace/fix? I can take it to the Apple Store tomorrow if you all feel that is appropriate. Thanks.
