    Tilt screen back further - Hinge MOD?

    T100 tilt goes back to about 110 degrees while my TF101 screen goes back to around 145 degrees!?!?
    ... Being a tall guy, I have to either slouch horrendously to get into the right viewing angle of the screen and risk permanently altering my posture or tilt the keyboard dock by picking it up so that the screen goes back further So much for the IPS.

    Has anyone opened their dock and looked at the hinge? More specifically the rotator blocker? Maybe some sort of Modification can be done to increase the tilt.

    I know there's a metal counter weight in the dock so that it doesn't tip over but I wouldn't worry about it too much seeing that my palms rest on the dock AND I can always tilt it to the recommended angle when I want it to stand alone. Plus my TF101 doesn't tip over and the tablet is .3 lbs heavier.

    Ditch the keyboard/dock and be one with a Windows tablet.

    unless you really need the dock, i got a lovely cover off ebay. It allows you to set the screen to almost 3 levels and much much better to use than the dock, covers the front and back and look really good and professional. added bonus is that when you want the keyboard, you can attach it without taking the cover off...! Now that is good. also means as its not docked into the keybaord my battery decreased by about 2-3% in 24hrs instead of around 6% docked.

    With the cover its less cumbersome and looks less like a notebook..!

    Has anyone looked into the hinge after opening the dock? If there is something that can be repositioned??

    i got from hongkong and cost me about 13 UKP. You can slide the keyboard in easily. There are many that look similar but i have found this to be the best.

    I would like to have more tilt so that the computer could lay flat.

    If someone has opened up their dock, it would be awesome if they could take a peak at the hinge. Maybe there is a way to extend the tilt.

    You won't see that, because, can you believe it, someone patented the concept of a hinge that opens 180 degrees. On a computing device, that is.
