    So I was at my friends house when I shut my MacBook down I saw this, is this normal? It looks like the right side has more of that soft gummy thing that separates the screen glass from touching the aluminum. I only have like 2 weeks with it so I can still go to the apple store and get a replacement

    Looks fine to me. Production is rarely spot on with the rubber there- mine the entire display assembly is a bit off. If it annoys you a lot though, return it

    Yes, I would get to a apple store ASAP. The machine is supposed to be manufactured to high tolerances towards engineering. I have seen apple replace machines for even less.


    This could lead to other concerns later down the road and cause you not to be under warranty.

    Do you guys know how apple deals with the returns? Ive only had it for 11 days and I was thinking about going to tomorrow. Do they replace it with a new out of the box MacBook or what?

    I believe it's a 14 day returns policy. I'd probably return it with everything that came with it, since they'll probably give you a new one.

    Apple's DOA (Death On Arrival) policy is 14 days, but need to take it back to where you bought it from.
    On the other hand, in South Korea , it's 30 days.
