Default Fit and Finish - 04-04-2011, 11:41 PM

Hi everyone,

Just noticed that the rotating part of the screen doesn't seem to sit flush with the border around the webcam area. When in laptop mode, the screen is a little sunken in and protrudes a little in the back and when in tablet mode, the area around the Dell logo seems to stick up a bit. Has anyone else noticed this? Just wondering if this is normal. Thanks.

That isn't normal - my screen sits flush on both sides with no odd protuberances. Could be damage in shipping?

Bought my Duo 2 days ago, and did notice the same although thought nothing of it until I read this. It's only a millimeter out, and probably quite normal (50:50 so far) but let us know what the outcome is if you do speak to Dell.

Hi everyone,

So I called Dell and tried to explain to them the fit and finish issue I had. They were going to send out a box for me to send back the unit for them to look at. Since I bought mine through Costco and it has a 90 day return policy, I'm just going to return this one and get another one to see if it is the same. That way I won't be without a Duo for work. I'll update here if there is any change.
