Hi, Edwardson. I believe we bought the same laptop. Mine has the same issue, which doesn't look like a natural design. Since you didn't get an answer, I want to redo your question: is it a defect or by design??
Turn the page. The Samsung Ativ Book 5 is a slim, yet sturdy 14-inch touchscreen Ultrabook based on a previous-generation Ivy Bridge processor. How does the sleek looking system with its dual-core i5 CPU and integrated graphics card stack up against the competition?
