    Hey,

    I've just purchased a Macbook Pro 17" (2011 version) and noticed when I tilt it forward the screen lid closes...

    Is this normal or is there something wrong with my hinges and I should report this to apple?

    Thanks in advance,

    I wouldn't say that this is normal. Take it into the Apple Store. They might be able to tighten the hinges or failing that replace the unit for you.

    I think this is normal. Mine does it. It is a heavy screen. Gravity takes over.

    Yeah I've seen somewhere that it only happens on a certain few and if you take it into a Apple Store they can tighten the hinge... Might have to phone up and see.

    To my knowledge you can tighten the hinge's connection to the base but you cannot tighten the mechanism that controls how hard it closes or opens.
