    when my mba that i purchased 2 weeks ago is closed, the lid is not perfectly aligned. I would post pictures but it would be hard to capture, it is very minimal.
    even though it is minimal, it is still there... i have one day to return it, also it has never been dropped or anything and i bought it new.

    i was wondering if some of you guys have the same problem?
    im normally not that OCD, but since im on the 13th day mark Im wondering if i should exchange it just to be cautionary?

    I have OCD, return it since u have the one day period left. You notice it now, you will notice it later on.

    Very few are perfectly aligned when viewing from all angles. I suppose a photo may help, but I think you may get one that's actually worse if yours is ever so slightly off.

    I totally agree *with fatlardo*. I noticed a dead pixel at the bottom right corner of my notebook today and I will probably return it the next time I am in town. Not because one pixel is so devastating, but simply because I know it will always be there and it will always bother me to some degree.

    You're always going to notice that slight offset and you will regret it if you don't return it.

    Good luck with your return! Best of luck!

    im completely happy with my mba, and i think im just gonna keep it...

    it is very minimal, and who knows if i test my luck i may get dead pixels or interior problems or something

    in a photo you wouldnt be able to notice it..
    you have to be looking completely parrallel and up close to notice its off a little

    If it makes you feel better mine 11 is the same, the screen is slightly shifted to the right. I can see on the back of the machine that it appears to be how the screen hinge is seated, rather than actually being twisted or something.

    Personally, I would much rather take this over something like a stuck pixel. It's a slight imperfection.

    I agree, take it back to the Apple store, they will fix it.
