    I just recently bought a 2.4 macbook and after a few days of use, I noticed that when the lappy is closed, the top case to the right side is slightly curved. This doesn't really bother me to much but it would be nice to have a stright laptop for the $1300 i paid for it. I don't think you can see it in the pictures below because you cant really compare but as you can see, towards the center there is a larger gap. Is it worth it the trip to my local apple store and get a replacemet?

    Does is do it on both sides? Apple Care doesn't cover cosmetic issues, as this is, but I wouln't worry about it, seems normal to me.

    Give Apple a call...

    or just swing by the Apple Store and have them look at it. It maybe "cosmetic" but they should make it right. After all, it is Brand New and it looks like they should replace it or make the adjustment to meet your expectations. :cool:

    Isn't this just a case of the magnets holding down the two strips of plastic at either ends?

    My personal oppinion is that I just bought a brand new Macbook and it is not cosmetically "perfect," as long as I didn't do anything to it I would be taking it to the Apple store to have them make it "perfect." If anything is going to be wrong with it, you want to be the one that does it right? If they say its not covered, complain for a while about how you just noticed it and you bought it brand new. They will eventually give in. It always works.

    Yeah but if you just bought a brand new laptop and its crooked.. apple care WILL cover it.

    I can't see it..

    And, I'm not OCD enough for it to bother me, even if I could, but YMMV.

    I personally woldn't make the trip to visit a 'Genius' for a minor issue, but I also wouldn't think about it more than just once, let alone lay awake at night thinking about it.

    yea, i hardly even notice it... only when i really look at it, but i don't think ill go through the trouble. btw, do moderators automatically change the thread titles if they are not get enough posts? My thread was originally "Is it worth it?"
