    Bought a new macbook last week. It's wonderful. I love it. BUT, I was looking at the hinge and noticed that the space between the bottom of the top is a slightly bigger gap than the space on the left (while open). When it closes I find the engineering to be amazing because the top and the bottom come SO close to scraping there....but it comes REALLY close on my left side.


    Is this something you guys would show a genius? Or would you let it go?

    If it isn't actually scraping it, leave it go.

    No, it is not scraping that I can tell. It's kind of difficult to hold your ear to the corner of the notebook while opening and closing it over and over again to hear if its scraping.


    :D

    OMG yes that is total OCD. Just keep the Macbook and enjoy it and stop trying to find faults with it. Enjoy it and stop worrying. You should be happy you have one.

    Umm it's not what you have, it's what you do with it. Nothing is perfect, and Apple is no exception. They're closer than most ppl anyways, if it bothers you that much, go exchange it.

    If I took it in the guys at the mac store would probably laugh me out of there anyway. We're talking about a fraction of a millimeter here.

    please take it in. I would love to pick up a refurb that has the gap as its only issue.

    Wait until you find out that one of your ears is higher than the other, and it is bad enough for us to notice it from here. :p

    Apple just replaced my previous model Pro due to the faulty graphics card with the late 08 Pro. It is a beaut but I found it big and heavy. After checking out the MB at Future Shop I was sold. I found a local Apple dealer that exchanged my two week old late 08 Pro for a 2.4 with 320g upgrade and 4g ram. Wow, it is sexy. The size and weight are perfect....Airish but with functionability and just a pleasure to use. Some may think I am crazy but......and I tried to find flaws but couldnt. Seems I got a gooder.

    Definitely OCD. Really, just relax unless something serious goes wrong.

    I would definitely say OCD. Don't worry, I have some pretty nasty OCD also and probably would have noticed the same thing but I would never take it back to an Apple store, if it works great with no other problems then love the thing!
