    Oh mercy!! I just spent 30 minutes bending and twisting mine in all possible shapes, and I dont know if it helped the problem :)
    But I was wondering the same thing... If you give it a try, let me know how it goes. I won't have time to sit down and call them for the next week or so..

    Awesome news! I'll be next! Mine is horribly twisted and uneven.

    My battery cover is a little loose and I've already talked to a Genius about it, he documented it and said if I am having trouble with it, I can bring it in and get it returned... do you think if I do this, they will allow me to pay the difference to upgrade to the 2.4GHz? I've had some regrets and kinda want the upgraded model.... what do you all think?

    What about getting the same model, but adding 2GB of RAM? What do you think would be more worth while if I plan on keep this laptop for at least 3 years?
