I'm really fed up with my 2 year old Dell Inspiron 1318 notebook computer. My right laptop hinge has broken for the SECOND time. The plastic has also cracked at the hinges and my laptop is falling apart
. The first time this happened was about 6 months ago and it was very costly to repair (they had to replace the ENTIRE screen cover). I have done nothing but open and close my laptop, I have not traveled with it nor have I ever dropped it. Within a year and a half of having this laptop I've had to: pay to get the adapter replaced, pay for a technician to help me reinstall software over the phone because my laptop was failing to start, pay for the hinge and laptop screen cover to be replaced. NOW I have a dying battery, and the hinge needs to be replaced AGAIN... I have been paying incredibly high fees for these repairs/replacements and the costs of these replacements have probably covered more than half the cost of what I paid for the computer. This is absolutely ridiculous!! I am disgusted with this poor excuse for a computer and the extortionate repair costs!
