    I got the 2009 model in March in Taiwan and I noticed that the trackpad is a bit slanted. The left bottom side is above the palm rest and the right bottom side is low. Also the power button seems to be a bit in. These are small problems that I don't really mind but should I take it in and get it looked at or something?

    It isn't normal. If it bothers you then I suggest you go to an apple store and see what sort of repairs you can do. Everything is fixable, and everything has a price.

    He probably doesn't have warranty. The power button is supposed to be recessed.

    I'm talking about the trackpad. Even if he doesn't have a warranty, there are places that'll fix it...for a cost. If it isn't a big deal, I would suggest against spending the money on it.

    I have full warranty. I bought it in March 2010 but it's the 09 model. So pretty much a month before the new 2010 models came out. It's the 13 inch MBP. It doesn't bother me too much but I've played with some MBP's recently and their trackpads are perfect and the power button seems to be really good at clicking.

    No. The platic power button should be flush with the aluminum chassis.

    I thought the button was aluminum. Anyways mine is also slightly recessed, only enough to feel it by touch. Which I also believe is normal.

    the button on the aluminum unibody Macintoshes are plastic from what I understand. Also it should be flush. Also the glass track pad should be flush with the aluminum all the way around. All the MBPs on display at my Apple Store are flush and fine. My moms and brothers have a track pad thats flush at the top, but sunk slightly at the bottom.
