Hey guys.

I have attached a video to you, which shows how loose and wobbly my display is from the Macbook.

I'm really not sure if it has always been like this and only now I noticed.

I had the book a week ago for something else in the repair at Apple and I've also been commissioned to tighten the hinges.

But it still looks like this.

Is that similar to you?

My does not do that.

Mine moved too easily if I had a hard cover on it. The added weight was too much. I took the cover off and now it’s good. However, even with the added weight of the hard cover, mine was nowhere near as wobbly as yours.

Mine came like this new out of the sealed box. i never got it fixed due to also having the 2017 pro. will go next week to tighten it up since it is kinda annoying for travel.
