Thinkpad P1: Paint peeling out from right and left bottom borders

2019-05-06, 18:07 PM

Well,

 

The title speaks for itself. I got a P1 a couple of months ago, expecting for all the durability and endurance branded by Lenovo, and I just noticed the paint is peeling out from the botton borders, left and right. Not sure why... This was an investment for me and I expected much better durability than what I am getting. It's amazing as well, becasuse I've been incredibly carefull handling the device, and it is way disappoitning to see the pain just peeling out for nothing.

 

Does anyone had a simillar issue? How did it go? Should I contact warranty or it'll be worthless?

I just looked at the same area on my P1, and I don't think that is a painted surface.

I've recently noticed a similar problem on my P1.  In my case the peeling is closer to the corners and happening on both the left and right.  I plan on contacting warranty about it, but also don't know that they can do about it.

Nothing they told me it's not covered by the warranty as it's cosmetic not related to the function of the laptop.

Actually I have a bigger issue with them now my laptop was manufactured August 21, 2019 so if worst case warranty should be a year from that date but mine expire one day later and now trying to make them update it and they giving me a hard time for more than month and half.
