Just purchased a brand new Asus UX461UN, and the metal case near the USB port is bent outwards. It looks to be mainly a cosmetic issue, but it's unsightly and a major bummer for a new $1,300 device that came straight out of the box. At certain angles, I can see a hole between the material through to the other side.

Is this easily fixable, or should I RMA it? Bought it off B&H, but it might be weeks before I get it back again.

Thanks!

Looks like all you need to do is push it in a tiny bit and it will be fine. Put a cloth over the surface, small cloth like used for cleaning glasses is good, and roll something smooth over it a few times with a bit of pressure (only a bit so you don't dent the surrounding area). Smooth round pen or pencil should be good.
