why dont all laptop hinges let the screen go all the way back? Why would manufacturers want to limit the tilt to about 135°

There's a cable that has to carry the display signal, and it's probably a lot easier to keep that doing its job if you don't let the screen tilt super far. Plus, laptop manufacturers probably don't want to give the impression that it's a touchscreen, since laptops that do fold over all the way have touchscreens.

Although, there are plenty of laptops that fold 180°, thinkpads and whatnot, or dell stuff, but MacBooks don't because of their aluminum clamshell body design.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Why would you need that? I can kinda understand 2-in-1s, but not screens that can go flat on the table but not further back.

Different hinge designs have different strengths and weaknesses. My uneducated assumption is that it most likely comes down to two factors, cost and strength.

I meant that why dont they go to 180. 360 is unnessasary for non-touch

Because laptop design and hinge type

 

There are some non convertible models with 180 degree hinge (like my Y530)
