Hi guys,


A couple of days ago, my MacBook Pro (mid 2010) came back from the Apple Service Centre. The logic board had to be replaced.


Now, I have noticed that the hinge (the black plastic cover) easily moves from right to left and from left to right: like that So, it basically slides left and right while I don't even use much force.


I have never seen it before (I think): at least, I have never noticed it before.


Do you also have it? Does the replacement of the logic board have anything to do with the hinge? Maybe all MacBook Pros have it and I had just never noticed it...


I brought the machine back to the Service Centre and they told me that it is fine and that they hadn't even touched the screen. What can I do now?

MBP 15 Alu '10, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
