X61 Tablet: Cracking Bezel Plastic

2008-04-01, 20:31 PM
I bought a 776796U last August and since October the plastic bezel around the display has been deteriorating.  It started at the corners on the inside piece, not the normally exposed outer lid.  There are now cracks at each corner extending roughly to the inside edge by the display.  Besides the leprosy effect at three of the four corners there are no problems with the display, switches or fingerprint reader.
 
Has anyone else had an X61 Tablet desintegrate like this?

YES, me too!
 
Within two weeks of purchase in September 2007, I had the bevel start separating.
Shortly after the bottom left corner broke and a small piece of plastic maybe 2mm square popped out. Super glue fixed that, but it worried me enough to replace my laptop bag, which I had used for the last years with my previous machine.
Now I've just had to glue back my 2nd corner, with a third missing.
 
I have cracks extending from the screen to the 4th corner and a single crack nearly 3/4" long just to the right of the finger print scanner.
 
 
I deliberately bought Lenovo for the supposed build quality.
 
I'll post again will the results of a call to the support line.

AndyP,
 
 
Could you provide an updated one, or has Lenovo stopped offering the parts?
 
Thanks!

Having read through the forum a bit today, it would appear that the support site is down for maintainance as several members have referred to it not working,

Been there, replaced that.  My bezel cracked in the lower left and right corners and around the finger print reader.  I purchased the unit in September and had it repaired in December.  The new bezel seems to be holding together okay.
