    hey guys got a question about the MBP hinge

    is mine normal, i noticed that one the side there is a little gap one the hinge where the lower part rests on the aluminum

    the other side is mostly flush but does have a little of this.

    i believe it does this because if you close the lid an look at the back, one side of the screen is like a mirco-meter higher than the other, the higher side has the bigger gap on the hinge, since the hinge rests on the aluminum of the screen, i believe.

    is there any reason to be worried about this.

    the hinge also makes a creek sound when i pick up the MBP by the hinge ( i heard others say it happens to them to with the creek)

    sorrry for the crap pic, i can never get pics to upload good on here not sure why.

    on the 3rd "strip" of the image u can see the gap in the middle on the side of the hinge.
    thanks guys:apple:
