X1 Carbon 6th gen noise on the bottom right corner

2018-04-06, 3:43 AM

Hi guys, I bought a 6 gen X1c last week and just noticed today that every time I press the bottom right corner of the body, there is a cracking noise. This is my first lenovo laptop ever. I don't know if this is normal for lenovo laptop or for 6 gen X1C. Does anyone else have the same problem? I really don't know if this problem will affect the lifetime of my X1c in any way or some other functionalities. Many thanks!!

Yes!! Same problem. I had a non-touch version that I purchased from a physical store and didn't notice this at all, after a lot of use.

Later decided to go with touch screen, saw the memorial day sale and ordered one online from Lenovo.


THIS one, on both corners, will have an audible "click" noise coming from the plastic. Noticed the first time i ever opened it to turn it on. PRETTY WHACK if you ask me! The whole reason I went with Lenovo over Dell was because of the reputation of their build quality.


Not cool !  I have found another thread from 2012/13 describing a similar issue...but no response from Lenovo
