I brought this laptop for only a year and the hinges and the cover is splitting apart from the screen. Every time I close the laptop the screen plastic lid cracks and split further n further apart from the screen. As a result screen bends on closing. This is ridiculous. The laptop is all new and barely been used over the span of just one year. I hope acer has a solution to this problem. Spending this much for a laptop that spoils as a result of design error is not acceptable from a company like acer.
