I’m kind of embarrassed to ask about this, since it’s such a silly problem to have. I have hairy wrists. I will frequently rest them on the edges of the laptop while it’s on my lap. There is obviously a seam around the input cover because you can remove it. A few months ago, I dropped my laptop and that seam widened just a little (bottom cover is very mildly dented).
My wrist hairs frequently get in the seam between the bottom cover and input cover and when I lift my arms away, these hairs get ripped out.
I have no idea how to fix this. Please help for the sake of my poor wrists.
This also sounds great! I will buy some silicon and foam to experiment with!
I’ve tried, but I’ve already scratched up the bottom cover quite a bit doing it. It looks better now, but the seam is still a little wide.
Force of habit at this point, sadly.
That’s a good point! This is happening by the screw that’s intended to raise the input cover when unscrewed. I tightened it as much as I could without stripping the screw, and it’s sadly still a little open. If there’s some way to covert the raiser screw to a normal one, maybe I could tighten it more to close the gap? I’m not confident how to go about that, though.
Thank you all for the fantastic suggestions! I’ll update this thread when I start to play around with the silicon and foam inserts!
