X220 LCD Bezel separation

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I finally saved up enough money for a new thinkpad after about five-ish years and I was quite impressed wiith my new X220. then all of a sudden yesterday the top of the lid starts falling off. It's hard to explain where without looking at an x220. Unlike other thinkpads, the x220 seems to have two peices on the lid/screen. one large and one very small strip at the top. About yesterday mine seemed to loose it's glue and is bending and starting to come off.

 

What can I do? Will Lenovo repair it for me? Are there repair centers that I could have it fixed at? is this enough to get a new laptop?

 

As I said I just got it, it is under warranty and has even been less than 30 days.

 

What should I do?

Re: X220 Lid breaking

hum, this is a tricky case. You can call the Lenovo warranty service and talk to them about it.

Re: X220 Lid breaking

The build quality of this machine is really disappointing. Especially on the lid. I understand the frame is solid and great but what I don't understand why they've chosen such a poor quality outer parts.

Re: X220 Lid breaking

you mean why the plastic frame is chosen for that top strip. This is due to consideration for improving wireless signal reception.

No, I mean the whole outer chassis of this laptop. It's not just the lid that's cracking and bending. The finishing is really not that great for a laptop priced this high.

Re: X220 Lid breaking

i think some early build had some construction issue, but the x220 i got is absolutely brilliant in terms of quality, much better than the previous X series that i got.

I have the same issue except on the top right corner. Was this ever resolved?
