I have noticed that the edges of my new iPad seem to be separating. Am I crazy? I know these are very small but they're bothering the hell out of me. Also, I have noticed that when I touch the iPad on the top right corner there is sometimes a click but it happens very very rarely.

I kind of want to take it to the Apple Store, but I think they will laugh at my face since they are very minor.

Here are the pictures I took with my iPhone. Think this is worth getting a replacement for?

Your iPad is perfectly fine.

Here is an example of the iPad on it's side.

If you are talking about a space between the white plastic edging and the back aluminium (I cant see too much separation in your photos), I had this issue with my first new iPad so I brought it to the Genius Bar and they swapped it out, no questions asked...if you are not happy, bring it into a store.

Here are some better pics. Another part at the top of the iPad is now separating.

I took it to the Apple Store and the genius said that this was normal and it happened on his iPad as well, so they would not replace it.
:(

it looks totally normal to me. if you're that upset about it, go back to the genius bar. the odds of you getting the same genius are slim; and even so, give your reasons a little more. they'll usually look into it.

but again, looks fine to me.
