    i'll try to get pictures up later.
    i never noticed anything really at first, and i still don't and i never even questioned this until my speck case didn't fit right and i started wondering if it was my laptop that was the problem and not the case.

    when you close your laptop and look at it from the side, should you be able to see the screen whatsoever?
    it's pretty flush, kind of. but there's a gap there and i can notice it when the screen is on for the 3 seconds before it shuts itself off.
    i don't know if this is normal or not.

    again, i'll try to get pictures up, but if you could test it with yours that would be awesome.
    turn it to the side and close it, are you able to see the light of the screen and stuff still? blahhh

    This has been brought up a lot and seems like a normal thing on the 17"'s. They seem to be bowed towards the center.

    Agreed, its normal. I'm not sure it's supposed to be like that, but it seems to be the norm. The half dozen or so i've seen in real life all had it.
