    I got my 15" HR AG MBP last week and I love it! It's so much faster, quieter and cooler than my 1st gen core duo MBP!! But I do have one small complaint about, and it's more about the build quality than the actual performance.

    The LCD screen is slightly slanted from left to right behind the aluminum bezel (see the picture). I noticed it as soon as I first booted up the computer. It obviously doesn't affect how the computer runs, but it's a "cosmetic" problem. I've though about returning it and exchanging it for a new one, but since it was a CTO, it might take forever for a replacement and the nearest Apple Store is an hour away.

    Any advice or opinions on what I should do? Expect perfection in my Apple product and get a new one, or just live with it?

    My iPhone screen is slanted, just deal with it. Especially in today's world where being environmentally friendly is good karma. What do you think they will do with it once its returned? Refurb it or recycle it?

    Nothing is perfect. Even the Mona Lisa is falling apart ;).

    Why do they have to convert black bezel to grey just for AG? I don't get it.

    So it doesn't look like a cheapo eMachines product.
