My unibody mbp is about a month old, but it's been like this since I got it. But basically if you have the laptop up and running with the lid open, and you go to pick it up by the base, usually just the force of you lifting the laptop will be enough to move the screen out of position...

It's not moving under it's own weight or anything, but I just feel like the hinge should be a bit tighter. Should I take it to an Apple Store or are other people's MBP Unibody's like this also?

2009 MacBook Pro Unibody 15" - 2.66Ghz Core 2 Duo - 4GB 1066Mhz DDR3 - 320GB 7200rpm - GeForce 9400/9600M GT
QUOTE Thanks
