    I've searched everywhere, and i can't find a thread or video about removing the whole top portion of the mbp off. all i have found was how to replace the screen, but not the actual top with the hinge etc. when i close my mbp, the top part isn't aligned properly. the right corner of the bottom half of the unibody shows, while the left corner has a portion of the top portion overlaying the botom portion.

    hopefully that makes sense. is it hard to remove the whole top? how do u do it? is it worth risking my warranty?

    thanks all!

    Since you are still under warranty, why don't you let Apple fix it? Unless you don't live near an Apple store, I don't see why you would be trying to fix it yourself.

    thanks! looking into it now.

    its so minimal that i don't feel like looking foolish bringing up sucha small defect to the genius bar, while the next person over has a smoking mbp or something lol. depending on how easy it will be to do it myself, i may consider doing so.

    "Looking foolish?" People have gone in with pettier problems. I'm pretty sure it's a minor adjustment, having seen someone else's thread with the same problem not too long ago, but I still stand by my earlier post.
