P53 Chassis bent

2019-10-09, 14:47 PM

I saw one other similar post, but I just noticed when I receive my P53 and started to set it up that it doesn't sit flat on a flat surface. I'm not sure if the feet are the wrong size or if the chassis is bent? 

 

Anyone else seeing this issue? I've linked photos and a video below.

Prebuilt or CTO system? The small space between the right foot and the surface could just be an issue with the seating of the rubber foot on the left side of the unit.

I'm just setting up my P53 with the OLED display which I received about an hour ago. The unit sits squarely on the glass on my desk with no sign of rocking or movement.

I just received my P53 and I have exactly same condition. Laptop does not sit well on flat surface.
I have also thin horizontal lines on the oled screen . Not sure if it is touchscreen matrix but very annoying. Also while closing the lid there is crackling sounds come from left hinge.

Have you checked the seating of the P53 on another flat surface? The system should sit flat and not be rocking when you are typing. The noise in the hinge may work itself out with use. The hinges are very tight to hold the lid/panel in place and to keep it from vibrating.

No issue here with my P53, but can't really compare. Photo pics are dead?

I had exactly the same problem. I only noticed it a while after getting the laptop as it was always on a docking station connected to external monitors, keyboard and mouse from day 1. Whilst travelling and using the laptop on a desk noticed the keyboard was rocking badly when typing. Tried different flat surfaces including glass and the same issue persisted. I could only assume that the chasis is bent as a result of poor quality control.
