There was a little screen flex as the lid is on the thinner side, however as it’s solid metal it felt pretty sturdy, and this is aided by the hinges being out towards the corners.
No issue opening it up with one finger, with the battery up the front and cooling towards. There’s a problem using it on the lap because the keyboard is shifted to the front with the touchpad on the right-hand side. so it can be harder to type with the Laptop while on your lap.
