    Maybe should post a video. It's nothing serious doesn't move when I type. But if I put a finger on the top screen and press lightly the screen wobbles, and wobbles a little when you move the laptop. It stays firmly in place, just can move a little if you press on it. My macbook is 30 months. If you put a finger on the back of your laptop while open and press, does the screen wobble a little?

    What you're describing sounds pretty normal to me, which is whay you probably hasn't gotten much of a response. Screen is not rock solid, it stays in place, but yes it bounces a bit if you touch or move the computer.

    Agreed, no laptop screen is 100% frozen without a little bit of bounce/wobble at the outer edge of the LCD (the side furthest from the hinge), I'm assuming it has to do with the weight of the LCD itself spread out a far distance from the hinge without any support (a horrible explanation, I know, but I'm a liberal arts major, so sue me).

    I guess a vid would help visualizing it easier.
