IdeaPad 720s-13ARR Hinge

Hello community,


I recently bought an IdeaPad 720S-13ARR and noticed that the hinge is asymmetrical. I do not know if it is on purpose or if I have a defective unit. When the display is folded up, the gap on the left side of the hinge is noticeably larger than the gap on the right side. Also, when it is closed, the part of the hinge that is connected to the display sticks out more on the left.

Otherwise it is working really nice.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Re: IdeaPad 720s-13ARR Hinge

Hello Dom21

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

Unfortunately I don`t have this unit so I can`t exactly confirm or deny if it looks out of place, but from looking at it like this, it doesn`t seem to be too out of order, more of an imperfection really.


Saying that however, if you are concerned about the unit, you are probably better off following this up with your local Lenovo support line just to get a confirmation.


Below is the link to the phone list where you can find these numbers

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo!

Re: IdeaPad 720s-13ARR Hinge

I just got my new laptop, same model,  IdeaPad 720S-13ARR, I can confirm that mine has exactly the same hinge gaps as yours. Almost unnoticeable. I don't think there's anything to worry about mate.

Re: IdeaPad 720s-13ARR Hinge

Thanks for your answer. I was a bit concerned because the overall build quality of the IdeaPad is really good.

I guess I have to live with the gaps...
