    I've had my macbook for over 2 years and it's still in good shape, but I noticed when you kinda press against the screen it wobbles a little. Not sure if it always does this, but it's not really an issue because it doesn't wobble when I type. Is that normal? It's nothing to worry about is it?

    I'll probably be sending my laptop in for a cleaning later though, we still have it covered on our warranty and they let us send it in to clean the fans and stuff.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Is it normal for macbook pro laptops screens to wobble a little when touched or moved around? It doesn't seem to really be a problem when I type unless I shake the surface it's on. Just wanna know if it's normal never noticed until now. If I tap the screen with my finger it wobbles a bit too.

    The hinges could be giving in although many laptops does this with age it usually does not get worse.

    If its a MBP, it could be loose hinge screws (easy fix) or if its a MB it might be worn hinges and will need replacement (hard to fix).
