Is my buttonless trackpad set incorrectly?

    I just picked up the new MacBook Pro with the buttonless trackpad.

    I notice that my trackpad sits a little bit deeper (slightly) into the unibody on the right than it does on the left ever so slightly (again, barely noticeable). So it's almost like it's sloping down (again, barely noticeable). It works (aside from the widespread sometimes-doesn't-register-a-click issue) but I just wanted to see if anyone else's is like that?

    Mine's like that too, and I was just beginning the wonder the same thing.

    I guess it's normal then? Anyone else like to chime in for peace-of-mind?

    I'm on my second one right now, the first one sloped to both sides (the middle was more flush with the case then the sides).
    On this one the bottom right corner is slightly lower then the other corners and I was wondering if thats normal also.

    Mine is also like that, we're only talking fractions of a millimetre, though.

    guys this is just an illusion...it is because of the shadow coming in that is making it look like that. If you want proof turn your machine 180 degress and then look at it and you will think that the other side is now deeper.

    Not true, run your finger around the edge between the trackpad and the metal and you'll feel that that the two are almost flush for every edge besides the one in the bottom right (at least for me).

    Mine is the same way. Annoyed me at first, but everything works fine.

    My MacBook Pro's trackpad button is ever so slightly on a gradient. You notice when you go right down to eye level with it. From above, there is no difference, can't even see it unless you look for it and it doesn't affect the functionality of the button.

    I wouldn't worry about your glasspad.

    Sounds like it's normal. This is what I like to hear.

    he said the right side...not the bottom right corner, the bottom is supposed to be deeper because it is a moving part. As for the illusion I was talking about the entire sides.
