I've noticed that when my MBP warms up during intensive tasks (pushing 70+ C) temps, the bottom seems to flex downward towards the table. Nearly touching the table. Is this normal? I also think my table might not be perfectly level, but it definitely has some correlation with temperature.

I would take it into Apple, I don't think any flexing in the Unibody is normal at all.

Hope it's not your battery swelling. If so you need to take that into apple ASAP or it may explode.
