    has there been a consensus on the new mac book pro battery cover issue?

    mine slides around a bit (after first opened it.) will apple replace the cover? is there a better fitting new version?

    All the ones in the store slide around, so I think it's normal.

    Bought my MBP in November and the battery cover is rock solid.

    I could be wrong. I just heard that recently manufactured MBPs already solved this problem... (the first 2000 unibody macbook pros have this problem)

    Can anyone confirm that?

    Thanks!

    I purchased mine in Oct, battery cover is completely solid, have removed it a few times and no problems.
