x61s screen lid loose while closed

2010-01-07, 6:58 AM

I'm the owner of a relatively new (unboxed 4 months ago) x61s. What caught my eye ever since the beginning was, that unlike what I've read and myself experienced (I had the chance to play around with another x61s), the screen lid of this specimen still goes up and down while closed, as if the hinges were too stiff (more yet, the rightmost outer corner goes farther up). Inspection of the lid yields that it is slightly curved, both the cover itself and the shape of the right side, when the tip of the lid is pressed down. Is this something to be worried about? If it is, is there some way to rectify the situation?


(As a precautionary answer, I must admit I did indeed open the lid by rising it from the right side, where the release slider is, behavior I stopped some month and a half after the purchase, as already then I noticed the looseness and imbalance).


My thanks,
