what do you test?
how do you test it if there is no OS?
considering that you dont look at the screen, I am very interested in this
(when sparkly screens popped up, you said that you had to open already tested laptops to check the screen... if you did look at the screen when testing, it would be very obvious to see a messed up screen)
The LCD displays are also checked for clarity as well as pixel failure.
I am sure that every reseller has a different methods of testing prior to shipping, maybe some do not test at all.
Keep in mind, we do not build the ASUS notebooks, we simply configure them to the customers speification. Upon completion of the build, they are then tested.
Also, it is entirely possible for new components to fail ( hard drives, memory etc )this is why the manufacturers place a warranty on their hardware. In every notebook it has been our experience that the hard drives are always the weakest link. Despite the hard drives being brand new, we still see them fail. I would suggest to anyone that is storing critical data on your hard drive to make sure and backup your critical data, just in case you experience drive failure. The hard drive manufacturers are not concerned about any data that you may have lost if a drive were to fail.
