As long as you have your mother board replaced, you should be able to solve your problems.

nah, no implications here, but ihave to agree that i'm in the same boat with JacobHenry, i'm at college so i cant send it in, and my laptop's warranty expires the first week of june, so i gotta send it back as soon as i get off school... right now its so close that the warranty might expire as the laptop comes from them. (assuming 7-9 day ordeal)
but yea, i wish sager would read these forums, maybe then theyd realize that if they gave us reasonable credit towards a TRADE IN, they would not loose much money, considering we DID pay like ~$3000 for these machines originally.
but yea, they're a small company, i cant expect THAT much from them, but i dont think i'm gonna purchase a sager again in the future "unless they show that they care about their customers."
