Y50 - very disappointed

2014-09-06, 9:57 AM
So I bought Lenovo y50 laptop, useibg it for a few days and... It just fell down... from about 1 inch high (25 cm) (cause i put it on the shoe box while i put my shoes on). And what happened? Plastic cover (this grill) of the speaker is broken! My last HP laptop had been through much more and nothing hapoened to it! In y50 it's just poor quality plastic!
I called lenovo spare parts hotline and they don't even have this part! They wanted me to look for some 3rd party stores-come on lenovo, really? I found this part in other store, but price is almost 200$!!!It's way too much for such poor quality thing. Fru number of this part is: 5cb0f78813 (its lower case because apparently there is no option to replace just speaker cover)

I'm really disappointed of this laptop plastics quality!

My girlfriend has an HP Envy, and she dropped it about the same distance and snapped the plastic of the front speaker. So, don't drop your laptop, plastic is plastic, it's not Lexan or a ballistics material.

You don't get it, it was 25cm high, laptop fell on a soft carpet! Nothing should happen with it! I dropped my phone many times from 1,50m to concrete and nothing happened! I'm not complaining about whole quality, but this particular part was made of really poor quality plastic. It's like my 1000$ washing machine-really good, but screws are rusting-it shouldn't happen!
