Re: Lenovo 3000 N100 Cracked top

I noticed one day my year-old GS500 Touch had developed a scratch over the top right rear hinge, and I had no idea how it had gotten there. Over the next couple of weeks, the scratch developed into a full-blown crack in the lid. Meanwhile, my fan was operating all of the time and was pretty noisy, so I had to send it to Texas for repair under the warrenty that I had renewed. 


During the time the laptop was in repair, I talked with four different people and explained I had not dropped the laptop and that I had researched and discovered there is a known issue with Lenovo laptop cases cracking over a hinge. At one point, I was emailed a $286 invoice for replacement of the case, but when I called was assured it would be "zeroed out." 


The case was replaced, the fan was repaired, I was not charged, and I am a very happy camper. Thank you, Lenovo!


Now that I know about the cracks, I am very careful to NOT shut the laptop lid all the time as I used to, and I treat it with kid gloves. Apparently, these cases are made of very thin material. 


I am accustomed to researching all kinds of things when I buy a new computer, but I never thought to research case durability. Lesson learned!
