    Are your aluminum MBP cover's flexible? By cover, I mean the lid of the laptop. Mine is flexible where the apple logo is. Even if I press down gently around that area. Is this a fault in my MBP or is this normal in everyone else's ?

    Seems normal to me and OK as well as long as it has no impact on the display which you can test by pressing the lid gently while the notebook is on and watching whether the crystals start to emit rainbow colors.

    LOL......I thought I was the only person in the world worrying about that tonight........I just noticed it for the first time......

    Iit's surprisingly flexible, but as other posters have said, providing it doesn't have an impact on it that dents the alloy or damages the display behind it, things should be fine.

    Mine is flexible there too...while the body is very solid, the lid seems to be not-so-much. I hate that when closed, one side sits flush while the other leaves a small gap...something else that's very common from what I've read.
