    I'm wondering how far back my MBP extends. See, I was opening my MacBook Pro (13inch) and it seems that I may have brought the lid further back than i had intended.

    I would imagine its a total of maybe 100 degrees, definitely more than 90 degrees. but am freaking out about it.

    Nothing looks broken but I was thinking about either asking the community here, and/or going to an Apple Store to see the MBP
    s in hand...though the nearest Apple store is 3 hours north in Beijing.

    I don't have a measuring tool on hand but yes, it's more than ninety degrees. Not a whole lot more but still a notable slant. It's hard to describe. Maybe I'll take a photo later if I get access to a camera. What makes you think you broke it?

    yeah no reason to freak out, unless you took it back very hard, which i don't think any normal person would do on purpose.

    I was reaching across my desk to pick up my iPod when I accidentally tapped the bezel of the MBP, on the right side a bit rough. Everything within the MBP is working normally and there are no signs of damage...except for my own mental thought of thinking the lid now sways more easily when opening or closing the MBP.

    I've gone ahead and downloaded some "protractor" apps on my iPod Touch to see the degrees and will post back here in a bit.

    Alright so i'm back after testing out 4 different protractor apps on my iPod touch...

    ...of which they all point to 140* Degrees.

    Seems a bit much?

    I don't remember it going this far back, but then again I wasn't really proactively looking at the degrees of my MBP before this happened.

    Tomorrow i'll be walking into an Apple Store in Beijing, if there's time..Great Wall, and Museum of Man are higher on my list of things to see.. But am hoping someone in the MR community can post a picture of their MBP with their lid all the way back...

    I'd take a photo but accidentally broke my digital camera here in China two weeks ago and am now subjected to using only my Flip Mino HD.

    I don't like how little the MBP screen can be tilted back. My old Dell laptop, which lasted me 6 years, could be tilted back 180 degrees.
