    Though I am curious because I always assume that using the lid too much(opening and closing) would be bad for the hinges.

    As often as I need it. One to five or more times a day.

    My iBook was opened every day at least five times for over four years and the hinge is still strong.

    That's where I recognize that user name. Thanks.

    But my answer still stands.

    I used and abused my early 2008 MBP and the hinges were as good as new 2 years later. Its safer that way. :)

    Are you intentionally trying to post as many threads with ridiculous questions as possible? Looking at your history, you've started dozens of threads, asking questions which are either pointless or extremely basic, which you would know the answers to if you spent any time at all reading the existing threads in this forum.

    I hardly EVER open/close my Macbook. It's always open and connected to an external display. <3

    Do you avoid driving your car so you don't wear out your tires?

    It's a laptop... maniac.

    So laptops can't have hinge problems?

    Not from normal use. If they're defective, they're covered by warranty. But something tells me you knew this before posting this thread, as is the case with most of the threads you've posted.

    I don't turn on my MBP so the hard drive won't fail either. More importantly, it's ecologically sound.

    Never even turn it on- diminishes it's lifespan.

    I open and close my lid 5 to 10 times each day. The hinge seems to be fine, its just creaks a little though ...

    I knew you had posted this thread even before I opened it! Relax, it's just a laptop. If you're so afraid of it getting all these crazy issues you keep asking about, maybe you should have purchased something cheaper or a desktop.

    Are you really going to count how many times you have opened/closed the display? And only open/close, say, once per day?:rolleyes:

    Either that, or he/she has some serious issues with owning things. Of course you should take care of them, but you sound obsessed.

    I mean, like this: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=926237

    Are you serious?

    Well, looking at your history, it would appear that you spend most of your time catching people ask questions that have already been asked previously. :D

    I guess people have to be authoritative SOMEWHERE. :rolleyes:

    ...and if you bother to read my posts, you'll see I'm directing them to threads that contain their answers. It's not about being authoritative. It's about helping people find their answers quickly in existing threads, rather than starting new ones and having to wait for responses. :rolleyes:
