I've been using the Lenovo Y500 for 6 months now and I have noticed a weird issue:
Is it possible that the laptop's metal housing is collecting static energy?

When using the laptop for more than 30 mins, moving my palm above the laptop's surface has a really weird effect. It's like rubbing my hand over a rough surface and if I continue rubbing my hand for a minute, the roughness goes away for another 30 mins.

The laptop has been opened before for an SSD upgrade.

I know this method discharges my laptop, but it seems to build up while the laptop is running.
It's not a big issue, I just find it weird and a bit absurd.
