    I have a 1gen Air. It has worked flawless until now, when it made a strange sound. I just had it on my lap, but something happened to the mechanics between the computer and the screen. And now I cant even close the screen

    Ive tried to gently apply pressure but it didnt make any difference :(:(:(

    The hinge has failed. It's a known design flaw, and if you take it in to an apple store they'll repair it for free....
