Does any1 know how I can ajust the tightness of my monitor?
cheers
First of all, it's rarely a "10 minute job" to take apart a laptop, any laptop. They're tiny and hard to work with. Perhaps a 30 minute job, if you're experienced and have the proper tools and workspace. If you like, you can review the process for the old MacBook Pro. It's definitely not a ten-minute job.

The most likely reason you have to wait two days is that there are dozens of people who have already dropped their computers off to be fixed. You'll have to wait until it's your turn.

Second, if you just bought it, it's under warranty, right? So there won't be an expensive charge no matter how difficult it is. If you do it yourself, you may break something, and that would be expensive.
