This question is aimed towards current X301 owners.
I recently bought a refurbished X301 from Lenovo and noticed that the right display hinge is not as firm as the left hinge. So if the machine is open (display creates 90 degree angle with keyboard) and i pull against the top right corner of the display, the movement seems loose. When i do the same thing to the left hand corner, the movement is much more firm.
So if anyone else has an X301, i was wondering if you notice the same thing. The reason i am asking is because one of the main features of Lenovo that i like is that everything generally feels firm. This situation reminds me what an Acer feels like when trying to close the screen.

I have a used X301 I bought off Kijiji in Calgary. One of the first things I noticed was how tight theLCD hinges where. I tried the same thing you explained (pull each corner) and there is no movement in the hinges. Maybe order new hinges?

Can you try one more thing. press on the right hinge (the black thing right of the x301 sign) and do the same to the left hinge (left of the lenovo sign) and tell me if you feel any difference. my left hinge feels firm, but my right hinge moves a bit when i press on it.
