Case crack
#11
Greetings,

I too noticed a hairline crack near the pwr button a few months after delivery.

Removing the base screws (6) I noticed two or three were loose, half a turn or so. Most screws had locktite including the loose ones. I have no idea if these screws were loose at delivery but I alone have access to this 11" (1080p) Pinebook and I have not mistreated or dropped it.

Like the picture above it is a mess. Cracked screw holes for the hinge mounting brackets, bits of plastic debris.

I like my Pinebook. I still do and use it regularly. But I do not close it and thereby eliminate stress on the hinge assembly.

I'm not asking for a replacement or money back. But if a sturdier case came to market I might go that route.

Best..

HenryD
