Is it just me or in the hinge on the new MBP quite loose? Mine slides a fair bit compared to my old MBP.

It seemed to move more freely to me too, and that is another reason why I don't like the new MBPs

Mine is quite the opposite.
My Penryn MBP had a very loose hinge, I could not tilt the laptop without it closing. The new Unibody MBP has a much stiffer hinge.
