    hi guys,
    i'm still debating on an air. how durable are the hinges on them? i take good care of my stuff, but are the hinges like inevitably going to break?

    i've heard of the steel hinges upgrades on ebay. have anyone try it?

    The 2010 and on Air's have good hinges - I've owned several and used them extensively with no issues - there is also very little talk on this board of broken hinges on newer models.

    They seem like the same type of hinges as the MacBook Pros. The only ones that had problems were the first two generations of Airs.

    I thrash the hell out of my air and it's hinges are fine.

    Mine is a MBA 2010. Hinges have no problem, very solid.
