panicing PlayBook owner
Just got a 32gb playbook the other day and I can't stop playing it. More on that in a moment but some how my playbook got warped when I played it for too long and it got hot. It not much about a mill or two out of line I'm quite worried at the moment, is that normal at all ?? Tks in advance

do you mean a slight bulge in the middle of the back? That has happened to some people, some people have put it face down with a weight on it while its warm to get rid of the bulge but its not really a big deal.

My PB has never had any bump in the back.
I would think it would not be as easy to manufacture with an intended bump.
I know I've read of several who have developed a bump from overheat but I'm pretty sure I would not call that normal.
If its a big concern then I would do as djenkins6 suggested.

It's a protection for the internals like the Lenovo laptops have a curved lid. that's what I think. And mine is tiny. I'm not talking about a huge bump. Maybe I'm wrong. A picture could help.
Yes, the bump where the logo is. It not much, just enough so that the playbook won't sit flat on a table top. But I was able to press it back into shape and it cools to a more or less flat profile
Posting from my phone, hope to post pic when I got back home

I wouldn't call it normal but from what I have read on these forums it seems about half the PlayBooks have them.
Both of my PB's had the bump out of the box. I fixed mine by removing the back, heating and pressing. It hasn't come back. My wife's PB is in a case and she doesn't notice it.
There is a thread somewhere with a poll.

Someone else suggested heatinhg with a blow dyer then putting some heavy books on it until its cool. They created a thread with that method and a few people did it with success.
