    Don't know if it's just me, but my MacBook Air doesn't seem to be perfectly straight when the laptop touches against the top table of my desk. Both end of the screen is touching the edge of the top table.

    Does the lid close properly and seat evenly when closed. If so, it must be in the rubber feet?

    It closes properly for sure. So it's probably the rubber feet?

    are you sure it's not just your table? have you tried seeing if it's straight with one of those laser measures?

    Don't worry some screens are born that way. ;)

    Stick some Barbara Streisand on in iTunes and let it be :p








    And tidy your desk, it's giving me a nosebleed looking at it :) lol.

    From my point of view it looks like your MBA is standing wrongly.

    Yes, that's precisely what I thought on seeing this. That is *way* off. I really doubt a MBA would have any chance of getting through QC like that.

    Especially since all the parts are manufactured by a pass-fit forming machine, and those gummy feet cant be that much off either unless OP chopped off the three others.

    @OP:

    take one of those:

    Measure if your table is strait, then the base of the MBA, and then on the top edge of the screen.

    Well, yes... that's the other thing. I thought, even if you were to completely remove the two feet on one side, I really doubt it would lean that much - they add barely a few mm of height. I just can't see how it could be out by even close to that much.

    Or that wood shelf thing, or your camera, or the way your MBA is standing,...
    ...but most likely, all of the above.

    Don't have anything to measure if the desk is straight or not.. but been using it for 2 years already lol. I have everything on that desk.. obviously my camera wasn't on a tripod. I pushed my MBA back against the edge of the upper table.

    well if your MBA isn't warped, then your desk or that shelf has been uneven for 2 years. go get yourself a straight measure

    Those water-level measuring things, or whatever you call them in english, are not expensive, just a few bucks at most, and can be used in a lot situations.

    Use the ios level app! :)
    works great (and it's free) if you don't have the real thing. assuming you have an ios device.

    Do I really have uneven lighting? If so, I really would take this back since it has the Toshiba SSD :D
