Yoga 710 with bent/uneven bottom surface?

2016-08-27, 16:30 PM

I got my first Lenovo Yoga 710 around 1.5 weeks ago, and noticed something immediately when I opened it up. The metal "case" or laptop bottom was uneven. The bottom right side of the laptop is sorta bend from factory, the rubber part does not even touch the table when I put the laptop down. It isnt much, maybe a few millimeters, but whenever I use the laptop I hear and feel it rocking back and fort and making a clicking sound against the table. I really didnt expect this from such an expensive laptop. 

 

So, I contacted the store I got it from, and they ordered a new one from me. And guess what, the new unit is JUST the same. I looked at their display model and it sat flush with the table, rock solid. Did they just ship a bad batch of laptops with uneven surfaces, seeing that both the laptops I got is uneven? 

 

To be spesific, its the Yoga 710 14"ISK (I think). Anyone else experienced this themself, or know what I should do?

I had the same issue with my Lenovo 900 13.3". I keep it in a case in my bookbag as I have a lot of walking around campus to do each day.  I have only had the laptop for about 2 months and I just noticed it today.  I looked down the side and it seemed to be unlevel, doing the same rocking thing on the table as yours was.  The 900 has the watchband type hinge which I thought could have been the issue. Turns out, it was just twisted and so I twisted it the opposite direction and it sits flush witht the table now. Hope you get your issue resolved!

I have the same issue. My first Yoga 710 had this issue and I got a replacement (for a totally different reason) and my replacement has this uneven surface problem too. The reason I got my replacement was becasue my fan was running loud and continuously. Do you or anyone have this same problem?

 

Let me know. Thanks.

I just looked at my 710 15.6" Yoga and seems to have similar issue. The bending is in the both the screen part and the keyboard but the screen seems to be coming off it's casing. Pix showing this a bit with my finger pointing to it. I've only had it for a couple of months or so and didn't notice this at first. I actually only used it about 10 times or so. Very not happy. Hoping I can get a replacement from Bestbuy or Lenovo at this point.

Hey everyone,

 

Here to show similar condition: just got an ideapad S145-15API and the right side away from screen doesn't touch the resting surface. Kinda upset by this.. The entire laptop, by the way seems pretty fragile, nothing close in sturdyness when compared to my old dell latitude E7450.. specs are alright for price, though. 

 

Would be nice to see some replies from Lenovo admins and see what they have to say...

 

Cheers everyone, good luck with the bends.
