    Very pleased with my white macbook. The only issue I have is keyboard flex, especially on the left hand side, the flex is really terrible, at least compared to my old 3 year old ThinkPad.
    My question is if this is normal, or there is some kind of fix?
    Thank you in advance:)

    Can you describe what you mean by keyboard flex? The chicklet design of the MB and aluminum MB is supposed to eliminate flex related keyboard issues.

    Well, for example, pressing "A" would result in the entire keyboard frame on the left hand side to sink a little, even when pressed lightly..

    PS. For some reason, the flex doesnt happen anywhere else, only on the left hand side

    Starting to notice the same problem here on my 8 month old MacBook.

    Any fixes at all? Is it worth taking it up to Apple Genius Bar and complaining?

    I would say so, although chances are if it doesn't hurt the performance of the computer, they are reluctant to repair.

    I've only just noticed this! However it doesn't seem to be much of a problem, they probably won't do anything about it.
