    is this normal?

    the left hand side is sunk in slightly while the right hand side which is flush with the case...

    the trackpad works perfectly as does the rest of the macbook so i don't really wanna return it

    any advice on high to adjust it if nots not normal?

    thanks

    None of the trackpads seem perfect (at least the ones I've used) Either live with it, or contact Apple.

    You may be able to fix it. However you must remove the battery. And the tackpad isn't a user servicable part.
    So yes, you migh be able to fix it, but bow w/o voiding your warrenty. If it's a big deal, bring it to an apple store.

    I have a base 13" 2010 and my trackpad is EXACTLY the same as what you described.

    So the chances are if I took it back the new one would be exactly the same?

    Mine is more or less perfect.

    I just used a micrometer with a probe to measure the height of the trackpad area sides. I measured each side in 2 places and from the lowest to the highest measurement there is only a difference of around 4%.

    Ye gods I just realised what I did, and then posted about.

    I have the same thing going on with my current Macbook. I was quite concerned with it when I first got it but it's never caused any issues.
