It really doesn't, it's not cheap to pay for all of this shipping that they are having to pay for, and even if it was laziness or negligence the last time, I calmly stated that this was unacceptable, and I need to have a working machine, the woman I spoke to on the phone assured me that it would be kept an additional day for testing, the only other possibility is that the ups people f'ed it up by chucking the box, but logically that might explain a disconnected monitor cable, but not a dead mobo.
I'm getting to the point where I just hope they cash me out so I can use the money to build a desktop, and if anything should go wrong with that, well then I can fix the damn thing myself, i've had my laptop for two days since February 15th or so, and these refurbished logic boards seem to be crap if I have indeed gone through two so far, and they haven't just tried to solder on junk to my mobo.
It would however be nice to be able to crack open the thing and check and see if it is indeed a different mobo, if not for the ominous "VOID IF REMOVED" stickers on the screws of the plate underneath the keyboard.
For what it's worth, I loved my 8790 until about the one year mark, and then it started artifacting, and getting worse and worse gradually until even underclocking the core and memory in ATI tool wouldn't relieve the problems, and if I had chosen not to get the extended warranty service, I would be screwed.
Bottom line, if I want Gaming performance, i'm sticking to desktops, laptops are for web browsing and e-mail on the go.
