Fragile power socket

Based on this review I was interested in this tablet for my sons at Christmas. HP even did a bundle deal with case for £110 with £10 cash back. I bought 4 and 3 have been returned for power socket repair under warranty. The people in the shop admitted that HP had used inferior materials and have replaced LOADS of power sockets. Poor show
