Yeah that's why I used a strength test holding the laptop by the LCD assembly, so you can see how the hinges hold up. I did the tapping out of request, not really my idea.

Interesting, I've taken the Dell E6500 apart completely, I'd say it's stronger then the almost non existent "base" on the MBP, and just about every consumer laptop, and even equal's the Thinkpad's hinges. I've even used it for several times without any screws on the hinges while disassembling.

Hmm weird that you'd say the base was weak, it's cast magnesium alloy, pretty thick too.

You can see a quick disassembly guide I did and posted on Ifixit.com
