I have a system76 laptop that is about 4 years old. It is a 15" and I believe it is a Serval, but I am not 100% sure. At any rate, after a few years of very good service, and some unfortunate falls over the years, which had cracked the plastic around the hinge, the actual metal hinge itself has broken. Now I cant really close the laptop for fear that I will make it worse. I am sure I am way outside of any warranty I once had, and I am thinking I may need to get a new laptop finally, but I was wondering if there was any way to order a new part to fix it up?
Also, I was wondering if the newer models have better hinges. I have seen the same thing happen on two friend's Dell Latitudes, so it seems to be a big problem with laptops of that era. It looks like System76 and other manufacturers have a different style of hinge now, but I didnt know if this was the reason. Hopefully it is.
