Lenovo G50-80 Hinges and Known Issues?


I have an HP m6 that suffered from constant hinges breaking, despite getting them replaced, they break in 1 year max. Normal usage and no going outdoors I swear.

I then got yesterday a Dell 5558 that im returning due to its touchpad and screen's washed colors.


Now I'm here, about to get a G50-80 or a Z51, so my question is related to the G50-80 here:


1- What are the known issues? Everythin got issues, i'd rather know them before buying than after. 

2- Hinges... anyone experienced or heard about problems related to them breaking and so on? 


Thank you

Re: Lenovo G50-80 Hinges and Known Issues?


I have purchased Lenovo Laptop G50-80 on Nov 1st last year. I did face the issue. First the hinges become  tight.

Even for Normal usage, the two bottom screws peeled off.  The bottom case is being pulled apart near the hinges.

When I approached the Lenovo  service center , they said the whole case is to be replaced. They charge me USD 80.


They said it will not be covered under warranty. In my view, they have made plastic support , instead of metal.


Any justice ?
