Newest MacBook users complained about “cracked for no reason” screens

Published

on

Users of new Apple laptops based on Apple’s proprietary M1 platform began to complain about cracks in the screens that appear during normal use. The problem has been seen in both the MacBook Air and the M1 MacBook Pro based on the Apple M1.

In some cases, Apple repaired or replaced laptops for free, while most other users were billed for repairs.

Here’s a fairly typical story from an affected user:

I have a Macbook Pro M1. Bought in March 2021. Yesterday morning I opened it and found cracks on the screen. I contacted Apple and was forced to pay £ 570 up front to have it repaired. I told them that I didn’t do anything to damage the screen, but they replied that they would make a decision on the damage, if I’m guilty, I’ll lose my money. ”

Apple’s official community and Reddit have discussion threads in which users either report that cracks appeared when they opened or closed the lid, or that they just showed up the next time the laptop was opened. One example of complaints:

The same thing happened to me. The laptop was on my desk, and when I opened it, it broke and showed stripes. “

Among the messages from affected users, there are a couple of hints on the possible causes of such problems. Firstly, this could happen if the laptop was closed with any debris on the bottom. This is a risk for any laptop, but it is possible that much smaller, even imperceptible particles are the danger here.

Second, the screen could bend when closed, opened, or carried. One user suggests that the screen bezel is too weak to properly protect the display.

Gaming laptops will have a hard time following the release of Redmi G 2021. In terms of performance and price, it will be better than Lenovo Legion 5 and Asus TUF A15

As you can see, all three models are equipped with a Ryzen 7 5800H processor and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 dGPU, but in terms of the cooling system, the advantage is on the side of the Redmi device – it includes five heat pipes (competitors have three to four) and two 12 V fans each … Redmi and Lenovo surpass Asus in terms of color gamut of the screen matrix. But the most important thing here is the price. Redmi did not indicate it, but the symbols in the corresponding cell of the table are colored yellow – the color of the advantage. This means that the cost will be lower than that of competitors. The Lenovo device is priced at $ 1,295, the Asus at $ 1,220. The 2021 Redmi G is expected to cost around $ 1,090. But whether it will be so – we will find out tomorrow.

A very light laptop has been added to the range of Gigabyte. With a 14-inch screen, the U4 weighs only 990 g. However, you have to pay for it.

But first, about the main characteristics. The novelty has received the top-end Intel Core i9-1195G7 processor in its line. RAM can be from 8 GB or more than these 8 GB soldered on the motherboard, and in addition there is one DDR4 slot. The screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels. This is an IPS panel without the increased frame rate.

The storage subsystem can include two M.2 SSDs. Despite the size and weight, the range of ports is quite wide. There is USB 3.2 (x2), USB-C with Thunderbolt 4 support, HDMI 2.0, a headphone jack and a microSD slot. Also worth noting is Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 and MIL-STD-810G compliance. Dimensions are equal to 322 x 217 x 17.2 mm.

As for the mass payment mentioned at the beginning, this is autonomy. Gigabyte itself says about 8 hours of operation, but the problem is that the battery here has a capacity of only 36 Wh, which is below average. But there is a quick charge: 30 minutes is enough to replenish the capacity by 45%.
