Dell’s Stupid Laptop PC Hinges

Forget buying a laptop. Ever. At least if it has a certain “pattern” to the hinges at the screen-body intersection. I’ve found that “—-___________———————————–___________—-” (“-” is on the screen bottom and “_” is on the body) does not hold up. I just got my PC repaired, and it’s now out of warranty, but I think it’s starting to crack again, after less than 3 months!!! That’s great! Now it’s time to start shopping for another computer…


I am an avid technology and software user, in addition to being reasonably well-versed in CSS, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, Python, and (though it still scares me) Perl. Aside from my technological tendencies, I am also a theatre technician, sound designer, violinist, singer, and actor.

    I bought dell 7537. Laptop never fall and my hinge spoilt. How stupid they make the hinge screw to the plastics. Just after 1 year use, the laptop hinge had made my touch screen spoilt. Never to buy a dell anymore in my life
