    I have a MacBook Pro Retina (MC976LL/A) and the screen wobbles a bit when I open it. It's not terrible, but a bit annoying. Unfortunately, it's out of warranty. Is this something I can take in to an Apple Store and a Genius can just fix right there? Or would this end up costing me since it's out of warranty?

    Take it to your nearest Apple store and have them take a look at it, if it costs then they will tell you.

    I had this problem, and the ended up fixing it when it was still under warranty, by replacing it with a screen with bad pixels. I should have taken it back again, but I thought it was just one marginal pixel. It was only later that I realized that it was more than one.

    More recently I had trouble with a sort of a looseness and a clunking with the hinge, and took it apart to try and fix it myself. Once I figured out that the hinge cover has some tiny little pieces to close the ends off around the shafts, I was able to get to the hinge and just tighten up some loose bolts and it has been good ever since.

    Not sure where i am
    I've had the same problem with my non retina mac and i took it to apple and said it would cost 200 bucks, and then a week later i took it again and they did it for free. They just need to tighten some screws and make sure they don't charge you.
