Repairing broken hinge of GPD MicroPC

Few days ago my GPD MicroPC joined the club of broken hinges. I have successfully repaired it. I drilled two holes through the lid and enforced the lid using aluminum strip and steel screws.

It feels very sturdy now. The only disadvantage of this repair is that the lid cannot be opened at full angle anymore, because of the strip (see the comparison photo below). However, the angle is still quite comfortable.

  1. Could we maybe get a picture of it being open from the front too? I guess it looks extended back enough, but it’s hard for me as someone who doesn’t own it to visualize, I guess

    1. I added two photos comparing the maximum angles before and after the fix. I hope this helps.
