    Hi,

    I've had my MBA for a week now, and I've noticed that the paint on the aluminium next to the isight and and just before the screen starts is coming off...

    Here is a pic that shows you the area I'm talking about..

    Does anyone have the same problem?

    Take it back, as you are within the 14 days and get a replacement.

    The aluminum is supposed to be anodized, not painted.

    That's a picture from Apple's website anyway, how about a close-up picture of the problem on your own MBA?

    Maybe the frame around the display isn't aluminium?

    It is definitely aluminum. I returned one because the aluminum frame was bent/warped and detaching....
