Okay, I just checked mine out guys. My alignment on the bottom 1" of the
screen (part closest to the battery) is consistantly off by at least 1/4"
all the time, even right after I did a pen alignment. No problem doing
the alignment though. It does seem to be the worst at the bottom-left.
At the far right edge it seems to be fine. At the left, tapping on the
bottom half of the Extras icon doesn't work :(
