Strong Hinges to Hold Up Under Tough Use

The display hinges on both machines have also been extended in length and reinforced, so the new Chromebooks can endure more twisting and stress when handled by students to and from school and in their backpacks. Shown here are the rear hinges on the C740 Chromebook.
