Thread: Warped Lid
04-21-2005, 01:32 AM #1jessicaGuestWarped Lid
First--I searched these forums and found nothing. I used "warped lid" "warped" "warped powerbook". Just to be clear so I don't get flamed. :smile:
I just noticed my lid is warped and it is possible that my powerbook rocks. I can repeat the issue on many surfaces, but not all. I attribute that to the surface not being level. HOWEVER, this lid does not lie. It is about 1/16th of a inch off on the left side.
My powerbook was delivered on 3-1-05. Will apple repair/replace?

no they will not replace it, at the apple discussion forms (apple) do your search there for answers. Luckily, mine doesn't seem warped when I sit in on a surface, the aluminum is malleable and I heard people taking opposite corners and tweaking it slightly and having good results. There are little clear plastic pads you can buy that even out the distance upon closure. I don't know the link, but have seen it in the powerbook discussions a few months back. Don't worry but research it a little, perhaps someone can provide a link. The company also makes an interior pad sleeve thingy.

but come on a 1/16 of an inch is nothing! Your screen will flex a lot more than that, they are meant to.
Stop worrying and enjoy your toy
