Yoga 3 Pro: charger socket design problem

Hi All,


I'd be pretty happy with yoga 3 pro if not one serious problem. It is very easy to break near it's power socket. Look at the photo. When you have it charging it is extremely easy to touch something with a power cord. Its long plug provides a lever, breaking its (metallic!) top keyboard surface doesn't require any force at all. In fact you don't notice it. If you place it on a table you should be careful not to let some book or even a thick pen to be put under a plug, otherwise it breaks the keyboard too. I broke it some time ago, lenovo service center took about 100 euro to fix it replacing the whole keyboard. And that very moment it was clear that breaking it again is virtually inevitable. You just can't think about this plug all the time. And indeed 6 months after it is broken again :-( I think for a device like this a magnetic charging plug is a necessity.
