Dell Inspiron Defective Hinge Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating Dell over reports that many of their Inspiron laptops have defective hinges. Hinge cracking and weakness commonly arises among poorly constructed laptops and often cause much larger functional hindrances. The hinges may become too stiff or loosen and become unable to hold the screen up. Defective hinges can also cause unevenness in the display angle, or, in the worst cases, crack the screen or the plastic around the screen due to uneven pressure. In whichever way the hinge defect manifests, consumers report the same outcome: substantially diminished functionality of their Acer laptops. Owners depend upon Dell’s representations of highly functional and versatile laptops in their decision to choose Dell model laptops over competitors, only to find that the laptops do not live up to marketed standards and are substantially unusable upon the manifestation of this hinge defect.

Photo examples of the hinge defect are pictured below:
