Gateway 3522 issues

I recently purchased a Gateway 3522 notebook. I was looking for a compact, lightweight laptop for easy portability. I am generally pleased with it however a have a couple of concerns. Firstly, within a week of purchasing it, parts are falling off. Two black rubber screw covers below the screen have fallen off exposing the screws beneath. One is lost forever. Also the lower corners of the LCD display appear to have a dark discoloration so the screen brightness is not uniform. It?s as if the corners are being lightly pressed by something. These are minor but annoying issues. The question I have is, am I overreacting or are these legitimate quality concerns that I should have addressed. Has anyone had similar issues. Thanks
