    So long story short, I dropped my macbook 3 feet onto carpet. It put a slight dent in the lid, Im not worried about it but it made me notice how the lid when it's closed, extends slightly more in the back. Is that normal?

    like if this is the back:
    ____________ (lid)
    ___________ (body)

    but it's not that dramatic, like a few mm.

    So I guess I'm being paranoid, and surely the drop didn't do that. Thanks in advance

    It should sit flush with the body of the MacBook.

    pretty obvious that it should be flush, but i like your illustration anyways.

    Do you have a warranty on it? and is there any internal or noticeable damage to the actual screen?

    I'm not a moderator but I am pretty sure your not supposed to post a reply to yourself if no one replies. its called bumping.

    I'm only telling you this because I got sent a private msg about doing it once before.

    A few mm is quite a bit. How does it look on the front side? Is it flush there?

    Maybe send a few pics?
