T520 bent case issue

2020-02-15, 18:51 PM

Good afternoon, I noticed that the lid is adjacent to one of the corners of palmrest with a gap of 2-3 mm (I attach the photo). The upper palmrest **bleep** is adjacent to the bottom of the cusp with a gap of 0.5 mm. Perhaps there was a curvature of the magnesium frame of the lower part (there are no other defects in the case). Is it dangerous for a laptop? (The lenovo diagnostic test passes without errors, in stress tests the maximum temperature reaches 75 degrees (for this model, it seems to be a normal temperature). Should I worry about this?

Solved! See the solution

It's more likely one of the hinges is a little bent.  I wouldn't worry.  The laptop is about 8 years old.  I don't know how many laptop-years that is, but if that's the worst damage, I wouldn't worry.  Many machines last longer, but if I am relying on an older machine, I tend to backup my data more often.

I also thought that the problem is in a bent hingle. But when I laid the ruler to the bottom of the case, I saw a 2 mm gap.
