man Lenovo needs to get its act together. No wonder bestbuy stopped selling it. No that's not normal at all. Mine look the same but I've recently started to get about 1/2 inch play in the hinges. I can move the screen about a 1/2 inch before the hinges actually move. I'm starting to really wonder about the quality of the hinges. This combined with the fan noise...wow Lenovo.

Hi... my hinges had protective plastic film on them and looked like the one in your picture. Maybe that's the problem with your. If so it just peels off.

People whine way too much. Unless that hinge is loose or broken, there isn't really an issue. Its just an aesthetic issue that I am sure no one will notice. Yoga 13 has one of the most strongest and unique hinge mechanism I have seen on any laptop.

Well, if Lenovo touts solid aesthetics and design as one of the "features" of the laptop, you can bet you're paying a premium for it.  On a laptop costing this much, there shouldn't be issues like this.  I don't have different hinges, but mine have loosened up after only two months of use.  There's now a lot of play, which is pretty annoying depending on how the laptop is being used.
