    I notice that the top part around the hinge seems to have a bit of space (looseness) you want to call it between the two pieces. I gently press on it and notice it will make a creaky/ing sound from the plastic. I dont know if its me or if its common on laptops - but im pretty sure laptops should feel rock solid esp when closed - am I right? I dont know if I should change it. Especially right around the screen if I gently press on it, I can hear the plastic creak quite noticeably and feel space gaps between the plastics. I dont know, this is my 1st laptop, so I dont know how solid laptops are suppose to feel in hand.

    from a very worried member
    thanks.

    Are you saying the plastic casing "flexes"? How long have you had this laptop?

    Why don't you look at some in the store? Without seeing it, we probably can't really tell you what's "normal", but you can examine a bunch of them.
