    I turn off the machine and keep that 20 hours every day. Every day the battery will reduce 1% when I turn it on. Is that normal?

    BTW, the two pieces of macbook not so tight. This make me unhappy. Can I replace that one?

    Yes, because that is how the computers clock is powered - via the battery.

    What two 'pieces of macbook'?

    take a picture so we can have a look? I suspect you mean at the point where you open the lid with your thumb?
    I have 2 macbooks now, the new SR one arrived today and it looks like it is warped slightly, nothing really to worry about but i will keep an eye on it.

    It' not obviously. When I close the it, I can move the screen left and right about 1cm, slightly.

    1cm!!?!??!?!? Are you serious? That is a huge amount of give! I might be able to shift mine 1mm or less... but mine is 15 months old! I think you might want to take that in and have it looked at.

    Oh, well... that's not too severe, but still something to keep your eye on.

    I didnt think they would. My new SR macbook lid isnt square like yours, mine overhangs to the right by about 1 or 2 mm :(

    I can force the lid to the left but it only returns to its original position.

    I'm not too bothered about it, any more out and i would be.

    Of cause it's not a big deal. I just want everything perfect. But I have found that I can never get everything perfect. I have been this apple store 4 times in 1 month for this machine. I guess the staff must be thinking: Look, the trouble maker is coming again. Now I'm really tied and I will never been there.
