    Just noticed that my MBP doesn't stay flat on my table. There's a wobble to it. The upper right and lower left move up or down. Has anyone had this happen? Should I be bringing it to my nearest Apple Store?

    Sure it's not your table? Did you try it on a different surface? Never noticed that with my MBP. If you're OCD like me you'll be at the Apple store when it opens Saturday morning.

    Mine is fine. I have noticed that happen before on a laptop but it was the table being a little off.

    I bet your table isn't flat. There are level apps for the iPhone if you want to test it. BUT if your Macbook Pro is the same as mine (early 2008, pre-unibody) its batteries can slowly expand, happened to me once, which would make it uneven.

    Try it on multiple surfaces.
    If you have an iPhone, find a carpenter's level app and test the desk that is showing the improper results of the laptop and see the app finds it level or not.

    This has happened to me as well with previous MacBooks. It wasn't the table either. I think what happens is if you hold the computer with one hand on the corner, you can actually bend the computer slightly. Not by much, but enough to make it not lay flat on a table.

    I find it humorous how many people in this thread have suggested checking the table.
