MBP casing bowing upwards above the CD-Rom/loose click button?

    I have a couple of very minor hardware "issues" with my current-gen 15" 2.4GHz MacBook Pro. The CD-Rom seems to be bowing upwards slightly away from the CD-rom. (Picture: http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/619/img0413qu9.jpg - Other side of MBP casing for reference: http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/2297/img0414nw9.jpg) Should I be worried about this? Someone else I have talked to says they've had it for about a year so far on their older Powerbook model.

    My second concern is the clickbutton south of the trackpad. On my laptop, it's possible to "rock" the clicker back and forth without registering a click, I would describe it as feeling "loose." Another 15" 2.2GHz model that I've had the opportunity to use doesn't exhibit that problem--the trackpad is very "solid" and not-loose. Is this a common problem? I'm still under my 90-day warranty, is this something Apple will acknowledge?

    I just looked at my friends mbp 15", there is no such bowing like that on his. I do see a little on the side by the firewire ports, but even still it's about 1/4 the amount you have. I'd have to say that the amount shown in your pictures is a bit much. What to do about it, I don't know.

    Huh, I just noticed my MBP's case is also bowingupward near the fireiwre ports on the right side.

    *shrug* Unless it cracks or detaches or otherwise does something weird, I'm not going to worry about it though.
