A friendly bet?
First of all, I thank Thunder and Anaconda, swaye and the rest that have helped me since I purchased a 6805 in Dec 2004. It is very much appreciated amd on more than one occasion probably prevented a laptop being tossed out a window.
Just to calm this this thread down a bit I will offer a friendly bet to any of the above that wish to participate.
Basically I am over a month on my 7th rma so either it will be replaced from Texas or the repair will be finished.
Here is my offer:
If within 2 week of receiving it and nothing goes wrong with it I will write something like "I love Emachines" I my rear end and post it.
If something miraculously goes wrong (7 times so far) you will post a negative message on your rear for all to see.
Yes, there is a little trust needed but believe me, I would much rather have to post a shot of my ugly rear than to pack it up again for another 40 day repair.
Just contacted Gateway and they also think over a month wait is too long again and are shipping off a "new" refurbed to me. I should receive it Monday or Tuesday. Can't complain about support from Gateway, wish Ford would upgrade my Windstar every 3 months due to repairs....
