    Has anybody else noticed slight flexing in the bottom half of the base part of the MBA? Mine flexes there when I pick it up and at one corner the bottom piece of aluminum doesn't sit flush with the top piece (The one with the KB/trackpad on it).

    my mba does that too... sometimes it flexes, and becomes VERY slightly unbalanced when i place it flat on the table (very slightly only. you'll need to press one of the edges to feel the imbalance).

    then other times, esp if its been pressed flat in my backpack, its fine..

    i don't think its an issue... its just designed that way..

    don't worry, as long as it functions correctly, no problem.

    Maybe I should take a picture to describe the issue better.
