The Hinge


The lowly hinge. The faithful hinge.

I've owned laptops with hinges so stiff I had to pry them open with both hands. I've owned laptops with hinges that wobble a ton.

I love my hinge. The MacBook Pro, opens smoothly with one finger, no wobble at all. The perfect hinge.

Then, the MacBook. Unusually hard to open, wobble. Not the perfect hinge.

Apple did good.

Apple did bad.

Why do you love the hinge? Is sturdiness pleasing to you? Or are you a flexibility kinda guy? Does your hinge detach altogether?

Thinness? Versatility? Tent-Mode (aka laptop doggy-style)?

Do you even care? Does anyone even care?!?
