So both of my hinges died and no applecare. So I wanted to see if anyone came up with a DIY solution or know anything about hinges and is it possible to make some little one and maybe for other air users. There is no way I am paying for a new air or repairing it. Im almost close to getting my Mac Pro. The only thing on the hinge is Patent number: RE37712 http://www.google.com/patents?id=UwUMAAAAEBAJ&printsec=abstract&zoom=4&source=gbs_summary_r&cad=0_0 Any more info would be nice.
