If you've read my previous post on the MacBook Air's problem with the hinges , you'll notice that there's alot of frustrated MacBook Air users who can't get their hinges fixed. Well , now Apple has a solution... WELL DONE!!!
Learn what you can do if you experience one or more of these issues with the hinges on your MacBook Air.
- Unable to close lid completely.
- Broken or cracked plastic near one or both of the hinges.
- More than one inch (2.54cm) of free play while opening or closing the lid.
- Lid falls freely into closed position from a 30-degree open position. (From a closed position, open the lid approximately 30 degrees and let go.)
You can take your MacBook Air to an Apple-Authorized Service Provider or Apple Retail Store for evaluation and repair if necessary, even if your product is out of warranty.
If you previously paid for a repair for hinge-related issues that were not caused by accidental damage, you may be eligible for a refund. Contact Apple for more information.
