Yoga 900-13ISK2 wristwatch hinge mesh loose/misaligned

I recently purchased the latest Yoga 900 from the Canadian Microsoft store (online).  It is the only option for a 2-in-1 in Canada that you can order with 16GB RAM + 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD.  The laptop arrived quickly and everything is working as expected.  On the centre of the wristwatch hinge there is a type of mesh that goes from front to back that covers a portion of it.

 

The mesh is not centered properly on my unit and it slightly protrudes out of the back of the hinge.  I realise that this is a minor issue, but I'm within Microsoft's 30 day return/exchange period.  The hinge does not appear to be loose, but i've only had the laptop for 3 days now.

 

I took some pictures to help illustrate the issue and I'm curious to see if anyone else has noticed the samething.IMG_20160804_185543.jpgIMG_20160804_185550.jpgIMG_20160804_185605.jpgIMG_20160806_204138.jpgIMG_20160806_204243.jpgIMG_20160806_204911.jpg

Re: Yoga 900-13ISK2 wristwatch hinge mesh loose/misaligned

Hello,

Welcome to Lenovo Community. My Yoga 900's watchband hinge does not have that odd piece. All of those sections are the same on mine.  If I were you I would return yours as long as it is under warranty.

 

Regards,

Looks to me as though what your pic shows is the ribbon cable that connects the display to the computer. My 131SK has that ribbon cable well contained within the hinge mechanism - no buldging on mine. Looks like future troubles with your 900 to me.

Thank you for the reply. It makes sense that it is a ribbon cable that connects from the motherboard to the display. If I lift the lid open and use it as a laptop the ribbon cable is slightly pinched, but as you move beyond 180 degrees the cable is placed under more stress. I look forward to getting a replacement, I just hope that it doesn't have any issues.

My first Yoga 900 was sent back to Microsoft and the replacment arrived today.  The first thing I checked was the watchband hinge, which appears to be defect free and no longer has a protruding ribbon cable.  The new laptop does have three minor scratches just above the keyboard that don't bother me.

 

The other issue is that there is now a tiny gap on the right side of the trackpad.  It isn't huge but it's something that I wish didn't exist.  The image is a pretty big magnification so it looks worse than it is.  The trackpad appears to be solid and flush all around. 

 

As a test, I was wondering if other users of the Yoga 900 can check to see if they are able to push with enough force around the top of the trackpad in order to casue the trackpad to click like the bottom.  I just noticed that if I use enough force, the top left and right of the trackpad can actually be pushed in to register a single click just like the bottom of it.

I will be keeping this unit and suspect that a third replacement would likely have something wrong with it.

 

Really frustrating as the Yoga 900 is really nice, besides the quality control issues, the only other issue for me is the lack of active stylus support.

 

Hopefully I find no more surprises and can start to enjoy my purchase.  I just hope that in the future Lenovo steps up their testing to ensure defects are kept to a minimal.IMG_20160810_161809.jpgRibbon cable is now contained within the hingeIMG_20160810_161819.jpgIMG_20160810_163242.jpgIMG_20160810_163250.jpgIMG_20160810_163258.jpgIMG_20160810_163316.jpgIMG_20160810_222117.jpgThe gap to the right of the trackpad

On my Yoga 900-131SK - no gaps, no unusual clicks. What you describe, I don't have on mine.

The unusual clicks is not something that would come up under normal usage, but it's kinda strange and I wonder if the trackpad will present further issues in the future.  The gap on the right side of the trackpad is more irritating as I know exactly where it is, however, it is small and most people wouldn't even notice it.

 

It would've been nice to receive a replacment where I didn't notice anything issues at all. I'm just grateful that the watchband hinge issue is no longer present.  I still have a 2 year extended warranty with Microsoft and their customer support is pretty good. 

 

I also wanted to know if anybody's ac adapter that comes with the Yoga 900 appers to be hot when charging.  The very first time I charged my laptop the ac adapter was quite hot.  I'm currently charging my laptop now and using the Lenovo settings application, under the power tab, the tempature displayed is 34°C.  On Lenovo's site, the max operating temperature is listed as 40°C - http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:item.detail?...

 

Thanks again for replying Dilbertnomore as it really helps me out!  I will continue to make posts if I observe anything unsusal to help Yoga users out, especially anyone who owns either a Yoga 900-13ISK or Yoga 900-13ISK2.

Correction in regards to the temperature of the ac adapter. The temp listed within the Lenovo settings is for the internal battery and not the ac adapter. I feel like the ac adapter does not get as hot now, but this is all pretty subjective.
