    Hi everyone,

    I have 3 problems with my aluminum macbook and I think that they are all related and are caused by each other.

    1) The hinge creeks sometimes when I slowly close the screen and I'm afraid it will only get worse as this just started happening.

    2) When the macbook is closed, the screen is uneven. The right side does not completely close and there is a gap between the base of the computer and the screen. However, the left side is just fine unless I push down on the right side then the left side just goes up and becomes uneven.

    3) The magnet is not completely as strong as it was when I first got the computer. I think this is because the screen is uneven.

    Can anyone tell me if apple care will cover this and if I bring it to the apple store will they fix it with no problem? Anyone had any experiences with this?

    Thanks in advance for helping me!

    They should fix it. It's not going to hurt anything try.
