    2) Shadows on the LCD lower left/right

    3) Bezel around touchpad loose.

    Sorry to hear that. Sounds like it was 'drop shipped' for real. :(

    Yeah a old one like in my sig, it's been my baby and I am gutted to have to take it back. Never dropped, never spilled anything on it, always used with care, been a true workhorse for me in the three month I owned it.

    Guy of course said it was a unusual issue and all the normal talk to protect Apple's rep, but the word I got from a few other guys in the store was it's a issue they see all to often now :(

    Still all new chassis and onwards and upwards eh :)
