So I got a new laptop, a Lenovo s540-14IWL. Everything is great about it, other than the fact that the bezel is not glued properly to the screen at the right and left edges.
I had this problem on the original one I got and also on two replacements. I decided to keep it because the price was very good and I really like it. The other options were not nearly as good and as a programmer I need to have a computer all the time.
I was wondering if someone could offer some help?
I got 2 options:
- Live with it.
- Send it to the lab under warranty as it's only about a week old (Problem is I saw their work on my cousin's laptop and it wasn't good).
Can it cause any further damage to the computer if I leave it like that. To the eye it's not as bad as it looks in the picture.
One important note: If I hold it with my hands it will glue back and look perfect for a few minutes (When it was new it stayed for longer) until it goes back to its' original state.
Thanks a lot for taking the time to read my post!
Here are some pictures:

The bezel is held in place by double stick tape, and if it comes lose and gets contaminated with dust etc. it loses its stick. Any local shop that does laptop repair could fix that for you pretty easily, or you could cut a small piece and slid it in yourself after cleaning the area with some rubbing alcohol and a swab.
