View Full Version : Should I be worried?

Bought the laptop at Best Buy 3 weeks ago. On the right hand side, behind the screen, there is some minor separation between the part that holds the screen in place and the bottom section of the laptop, as shown in pictures:


Screen open:

Anyone experiencing this? Not sure if it's worth the effort going to Best Buy for an exchange (I already installed my own SSD, etc).

Try snapping it in place.
(Just trying to give my 2 cents) :p

It snaps back in place, only to pop out with the slightest of movement (closing/opening the screen, for example).

When you open the screen do you hear a sound from the hinge?

Nope, no abnormal (squeaky, loud, scratchy, etc) sound at all when opening and closing the screen.

If you're concerned about it, take it back to Best Buy and get a replacement. Otherwise, just try and snap it back on yourself. That is extremely unlikely to have any negative effects on the operation of the unit long-term or even short-term.

If there is no abnormal sound then your good no need to be worried. only if you are unhappy with that and you have time just send it back and wait for replacement.

Alright, thanks for responses. It doesn't really bother me, but I had a slight deja vu remembering my M11x hinge issues where I had to have it replaced three times :X

The best thing to protect the hinge that you always open the screen from the center because people always open the screen from the right corner and the pressure will be on the right hinge that's why they broke.
