OK...I have resolution...let's hope. I have a 6809 that had the right hinge crack (a real nasty one too!) then the left one started as a hairline and was growing like a weed. I just got caught up on this board and yes I am S/N ending in 43. I purchased in May at local BBuy and noticed right crack within one month and left crack started in month two. Well I had an RMA box for over a month and finally mailed it in last Thursday. I got it back today (Tuesday)! I commend them on the fast return and new panel cover. I know they only replaced the cover because it was not all the way snapped at the bottom between the hinges. I snapped it back REALLY gently. Anyway, panel tightness feels the same upon opening, no cracks in hinges, no notebook shipping damage, and they did not even boot the PC (I checked logs). So RMA away folks, from me it was not bad at all.
