I received a new 2014 rMBP yesterday. I noticed that when the machine is closed I am able to move the black hinge cover very slightly. I can only do it when touching in the middle of the cover.

I have seen reports of a loose cover issue primarily on 2012 vintage machines. I'm wondering whether what I noticed is within normal specs, or whether this is an issue I should address.

Hello and welcome to the forum! :)

I have an 'early' 2013 rMBPro - just closed the top and have virtually no movement back to front or side to side. You did not give you location, but if an Apple store is nearby, then make an appointment w/ the Geniuses or contact Apple - assume that you've already registered the laptop? Good luck - Dave
