    So just got my 64GB PB. Waiting for updates then I can start playing. My first ( I guess) problem is with the power button. I figured when I press it I would hear a click of some sort but thats not the case. When I realease the button is when I get a click. Are they all like this.
    I also have a very slight bulge on my PB on the back. Ive read the issues about it and its not a huge issue for me but will it get worse? It seems that spot is getting warm while the PB is on.

    All 4 of my playbooks power button does that. I have heard of some with a bit better button. With the bulge I dont have any, but heat in that area is typical on all my playbooks.

    Take it back. You have no reason to have it with the bulge. It probably won't get worse but still. Why you you keep that one?

    Because there's really no point in taking it back unless the bulge is super-noticeable or you type on the playbook while it's laying on a flat surface. And why would anyone type like that? That's super awkward and uncomfortable.

    But if you really DO type like that, just laying it on the case/sleeve should solve that problem...

    It is a very slight bulge. Barely noticable. Like I said its not that big of an issue with me. I also dont want to have to ship it back and wait for a new one. Local best buy doesnt have any 64GB in stock so I ordered it from bestbuy.com. Thanks for the info guys. Was figureing I was the lucky one to get one with power button issues. Im sure I wont use that button much but its good to know.

    I guess I'm pretty lucky, 'cuz mine doesn't click, nor do I have a budge on the back.

    The power button is a non-issue. You won't be using it much anyway. I have probably used the power button maybe 10 times over the last two months.

    As for the bulge, if it's minor, my advice is to keep it. There is not guarantee your replacement Playbook won't have a bigger bulge and possibly other worse problems (e.g.dead poxels). It shouldn't get bigger. In a very unlikely event it does get bigger, the warranty will take care of that.
