7405GX Hinge CraxI bought my 7405GX last Xmas with the extended warranty from BestBuy. I thought I dodged the hinge cracking issue until today when I noticed a crack spreading across the left hinge.
I love my 7405GX because, for a measley $1300, I can write my dissertation at the coffee shop and school the Counter-Strike: Source kiddies when I get home.
What can I expect from Best Buy these days? Will they allow me to trade in my laptop for a new Gateway? Do I have to buy a new extended warranty if I do? How long does it take to get my rig back from the service center? I have lots of work to do over the next few months!!!
