    Hey I just bought a new MBP about 11 days ago and I am having some trouble with it. First off i've been getting the vertical striping real bad
    http://images.macrumors.com/article/...alStripes2.jpg

    and 2nd the case doesn't shut very evenly. I was wondering if you guys thought I should return it? And if i got a new one, since it is so close to the release date of the new MBP (if it is indeed Sept. 9th), should I just leave it unopened and return it again when the new MBP comes out so I don't have issues with the graphics card again? Is this possible to do? Thanks! :)

    definately take it back as that screen is not acceptable. im not sure about the uneven casing though as its just the aluminium being susceptable to minor warping and/or the hooks not being level. either way you should get a new one or a replaced screen.

    im not sure what the time period is when you buy a new Mac before a new one is released but i think its a month?

    yeh like swap it for the newest if you bought the previous version.

    so if new MBPs are released on Sep. 9 the OP wouldnt get the newer version?

    I think some people found that if you bent the frame that contains the screen (gently) so that it was straight and closed properly, it fixed some visual errors.

    If the computer were to be release on the 4th, a replacement would be out of the question.

    Why would you return just to get another and let it sit in the box? Return it and get your money back or your store credit. Better then going through 2 returns and thats if apple does release the new ones on the 9th. What if they dont?
