Um, hello out there.
My PB 12" tends to warp itself so it will not sit flat on a table or something. I can lightlly bend it back to normal, so it is not too much of an issue. My questions:

1) Is this normal?

and

2) Is it ok to bend it back or will I damage the PB? (It only gets off by 1 or maybe 2 millimeters.)

Danke Shoen. (I'm not german, nor do speak german, I just felt like it, so DON'T HATE ME.)(Not to be overemotional or anything either.)

well it is not normal, you might want check with your local apple store(not dealer). i dont think that bendling will damage the PB, since it bend back to the orginal positions

Ok, I might do that. It only warps about a centimeter or less though. Has this happened to anyone else?

My Powerbook used to never warp at all, but it is very recently starting to. Tomorrow, I'm going to tighten the screws on the outside. We've had like 100 degree weather here, I wonder if that has anything to do with it. Mine isn't much though, it has like a millimeter give if I try to bend it, where it used to have none.

Yes, my powerbook warps a lot. I thought it was my counter....so I put a level to it and it's definitely the powerbook. I'm on my second case...and it still warps. In fact the grey plastic edge trim is loose again which I believe is due to the warp case.

That actually happened to my iBook as well: If I set it on the table and pressed down on the bottom right corner it would wobble...

I just held down all corners and pushed down slightly on the one that was slightly higher and now it's fine...
