The keyboard cutout on my Macbook Pro is ~1mm closer to the edge at the bottom than at the top of the cutout. I think the whole top right corner of the unibody may be slightly lower than the rest. Just wanted to know if this was unusual or a frequent problem, or if anybody had seen it before.

I asked the Apple Genius Bar while it was there for a screen replacement and they just said it was interesting, but nothing more.

Image shows measurements near the top of the right speaker grill and near the bottom of the same speaker grill.

I would imagine thats within tolerance

As a QC analyst myself (pharma not electronics) I would imagine that there is a tolerance that has to be met and that this is within it.

When the Genius said "interesting" he probably had to stop himself saying "boring".

why not take a measuring device to the Apple store and check for yourself?

Canada, eh!
It seem unusual.

Is the left edge of the case before it dips down and the keyboard not even? Or where is it off?

Can you post a pic of the entire keyboard from above?
