Hello, How is the hinge holding up on your 1710? If you close the lid and walk around carrying it like a book, does the lid keep flapping against the keyboard? I bought mine yesterday, it gave a message "your PC ran into an error" after playing DOTA 2 online on ultra settings for an hour or so. The laptop was sitting on the table. I rebooted and then put a cooling pad underneath it (Cooling Pad OFF) and played DOTA for close to an hour, no problem. After I was done, turned it off and closed the lid. While I was carrying to my room, the lid was flapping against the base. The hinge doesn't have enough tension to keep the lid completely closed.
