    Maybe its just me, but does the keyboard on YOUR rMB look concave at all?

    Here's what I'm talking about with a picture (the gap over the middle keys is greater than the edges).

    This is the cursed life of an ex-quality engineer

    I think it's just a little flexible. I tried that with mine, and it turns out it's actually slightly _convex_, I can't get both ends of the card to touch the keyboard at the same time. It's really, really slight, though.

    Convex? So the middle keys are higher than the edges? I'm seeing the opposite, just hoping I haven't bent my rMB!

    This sounds more like someone being anal retentive than someone who who has been diagnosed with Obsessive-compulsive Disorder.

    For someone that has extreme diagnosed obsessive compulsive thoughts, these posts claiming "Apple OCD" make me cringe.

    Your laptop is fine. Just use it.

    Well the Parthenon was built intentionally convex to give it the illusion of being perfectly straight. Had they actually built it perfectly straight it would've appeared bowed. :)

    I barely see a difference, are you sure its concave and its not the result of some other factor, including the ruler used is not straight.

    To me, I barely noticed any different and as long as the top lid shuts nicely on to the bottom, I think its a non-issue.

    When the device is this thin it is difficult to get every thing to remain perfectly flat. Just another price paid for this insane "thin" thing.
