Do you lift your unibody MBP with one hand?

    I got a new MacBook Pro last week and I'm pretty paranoid about bending the chassis for some reason! I have a habit of lifting laptops with one hand and plastic seems bendier and to have more memory than aluminium...

    Any insight?

    I do it with my 17" MBP from 2009, though I angle it upwards.

    Yeah, this is a 13" so I'm guessing if you can lift a 17", a 13" should be ok...

    I do all the time but the chance of dropping it is 50% greater :eek:. Also, I have heard of one or two people bending down the chassis over the ethernet and firewire 800 ports which are particularly thin.

    Usually I hold it under my arm, by my side, like a box or something.

    I do it all the time. Sometimes I close the lid and balance on a corner with two fingers…

    I lift mine like that all the time, a 13" MBP.. There's no way in h*ll that it would bend from that. I don't know about the 15/17", but can't imagine they would either. The aluminum casing is really sturdy.

    I tend to just lift it from like the large expansive area to the right of the trackpad.

    You know what it's like with new stuff though.. Just stupid paranoia I guess :D
