However, the most important part is the fact that this laptop is faulty. The left hinge breaks after a certain amount of time no matter how well you treat your computer. It just happens. The real bummer is that Dell customer service refuses to acknowledge this problem and forces a hefty price tag to fix it. Also, this computer seems to have an overheating problem.
Update 1: I try to fix the hinge problem myself, so I opened up the monitor . Both hinges are mounted to two tiny magnesium plates. The problem is, the left hinge is 2 mm thick with a big cut out in the middle, and right one is a solid 6 mm plate. The uneven force distribution is what made the hinge fail. I try to look for replacement in ebay(search M14x hinge and see it for yourself). [...] It seems like the R2 has the same design. $5 epoxy glue fixed it for me, don't know how long that last.
