Is your ibook screen slanted to the left like mine?

On the topic of ibook screens, I've always felt my i book screen slants lower to the lower left when i am looking straight at it. And yes, the table i'm using it one is perfectly balanced. i actually confirmed it today when my sister told asked me about it. when i close the ibook it seems to be fine and aligned i guess but i've never used a notebook which had a screen which wasn't perfectly aligned. i guess i'll feel better if it's simply part of the design. Please share your thoughts.

Well, the base of my iBook isn't perfectly aligned because of the battery. For example, say those 4 rubber feet things weren't in place. Then if you were to place it on a totally flat surface, it wouldn't place itself flat, unless you push the battery in a bit. It's most 'unflat' on the corner of the battery near the button that you press to see how much charge it has left. The battery is seated and clicked in fine and yet, it isn't perfectly aligned with the iBook. Although this doesn't bother me, I shouldn't really be expecting such things when I pay nearly a thousand whatever for a laptop. Oh well, I guess even Apple has it's faults.

I noticed the same thing on mine when I first got it. It's just a peeve that it bothers me because if it's more flush it just looks better. Lol.

Yeah it's fairly minor but c'mon! you would assume it should be fairly flush like most, if not all, other notebooks. perhaps it may be the design of the ibook hinge that may have room for error. anyways we gotta live with it. as long as the ibook doesn't give me any problems i'll be happy.

if you close it, does the screen section of the case rest lower on the left that on the right?

Mine has that lovely uneven gap and sometime won't lock up when i close it.

Yay for my first Mac
