    Heads up!

    There is absolutely no reinforcement around the metal cutouts for the memory cards! Result, dented looking front of your new $3000+ Laptop. SERIOUSLY SONY?!!!!

    you made this bump by simply pushing it with your hands? Wasn't this suppose to be reinforced carbon chassis?

    Yep, got mine damaged, too... I remember I saw it in the middle of a meeting and the look on my face was something like "W..T..F..."

    Really cheap :(

    Thanks for the warning.
    Mine are still fine...perhaps because I leave my cards all of the time inside and rarely take them out.

    One corner of laptop got dented though...

    Take the bottom plate off and if it doesn't snap back into position on it's own, bend it back?

    Due to regular use? Ca you post pic?
    This is really unbelievable and definitely unacceptable! For premium materials used and even more premium price.... I guess Sony did too much of a weight reduction. I mean, the whole purpose of Z - "built for road warriors" is questionable now. And this is after few months of usage only...

    Not reassuring.


    Cheers,
    Miki

    Say, do you know where I can buy the bottom plate? Do you know the part number by any chance?
