HP Spectre x360

Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

New owner of HP Spectre x360 - 13-4003dx here.

 

I want to ask if the bottom of the laptop, the area above the fan openings where the FCC info/text lies, is supposed to creak when I press it slightly.

 

I first heard this noise when I took my laptop out of the sleeve and held that area. At first I thought it was just rubbing against the sleeve, but after further examination, that is not the case.

 

If this occurs with other models of the Spectre, it is a bad build quality, I am not sure which component is under there, but I want to know if the creaking noise is normal with only a slight press along the text area.

 

Thanks.

I have the same problem but in the front, in the back of the touchpad... really annoying. looks like the lid doesn't have nothing to lay on and the aluminium is very thin. poor quality for such expensive machine.

I have the exact same problem in the front and it is bothering me and I think I will return it because of it. I love everything about this laptop but this noise makes me regret paying a lot of money for a bad build quality.

 

HP, do you have a resolution to this issue?

I know this is a bit late but I have the same model spectre with no creaking in that area that you indicated. It's likely that it's a manufacturing defect instead of a design defect.
