Lappy arrived, looks like it still has no dead pixels...whew
Also looks like they repaired the NIC be it a new main board or a "network filter", and I now have the 3.4 EE that I paid for.
HS included a free gift in order to show that they care about their customers and to make things right....They gave me a logitech mx500 mouse, it retails for $39.95...wow..gee..you scew up a $4000 order, try to make up for it by giving me a game that I already bought from you then you give me a.... mouse. If I can afford to buy a $4K laptop I think I can afford to buy a $40 mouse. I was thinking more along the lines of upgrading my RAM or my 60Gig HD to an 80Gig......thanks HS (sarcasim).
Sorry rant over.
All in all I am happy to have my laptop back, but I would not recommend HS's customer service. Now that my lappy is what it is supposed to be, review will follow shortly.
