Well, Crap. My "New" 4380 has now had the LCD cover replaced due to cracks. Happened in Feb after only 2 months. Sager replaced it and sent it back 2weeks later.
Now, #2 has hairline cracks appearing on the left hinge after only a MONTH and I'm sure they will propogate as before. I told Sager that the hinges were too tight and that they needed to be loosened.... They forgot. Now it looks like it is going to go in for Set #3.
They suggested that I use "Both hands" when opening or closing.... Duh....has 2 latches, you kinda gotta do that unless you have a strong tongue, dontcha???
I should have listened to my self before buying another CRACKER Notebook. My 5660 ended up having 5 new covers even with loosening the hinges. It went in for a new MB in November and they replaced the lid then too.
So, now I have a 5660 that has a new lid and I'm afraid to open or close it... and I have my 4380 which is still under warranty.... but is cracked again.
IT IS A CRAP DESIGN.
I have not taken the 4380 apart, but I know it is going to look exactly like the 56XX.
I should have known when my first 4380 died after 3 weeks and they sent me a new one....
Oh, and this one has never been in the "bag" or traveled anywhere except from the family room to my bedroom.
Never dropped, kicked, thrown or anything... Just opened and closed like a hinged thing should be.....(Mostly I leave it open so I don't stress the cover!!!)
Sorry for the Rant......Yeah, I'm $1800 Pissed.
