    I noticed this
    Took a look inside but nothing bad to see
    Its a macbook pro late 2011 13 inch
    Should i worry? The hinges are steady and screen doesnt drop

    I wouldn't worry too much about the issue, I would take care when opening the computer. If you plan on keeping the computer for a while still... I would suggest getting it fixed as it will eventually get worse.

    Just got it but the hinge works fine what would be the problem? Only thing os that the hinges makes a sound when at a certain angle (almost closed) would it be a easy repair? I need to repair the glass aswel if that needs to be opened

    If you just got it, I would recommend taking it to the Apple Store for either a swap or repair.. it shouldn't have play like that.

    It honestly looks like the hinge assembly isn't attached appropriately, could just be loose.. but still.

    Definitely have it checked.. a NEW MBP should not do this(My two year old MBP doesn't).
