I agree it would be nice, but in reality it's not going to happen
Besides, I believe this $200 cost goes to the fact that most Sager laptops (and I have a quote from a rep saying over 80% are shipped with at least 1 dead pixel) this money goes to pay the labour and cost of replacing the screen on your laptop. How many times do they have to replace it? Maybe once if they are lucky. Maybe twice, thrice, who knows, on a bad day, the guy could be replacing your monitor more then 4 times. And now, according to their new policy, they are out of 5 LCD monitors, because they promise us they don't ship them to people who don't pay the $200. So, my suggestion is, no thanks, I won't pay the $200, so don't bother switching the screen, just send my money back.
But, I haven't gotten my laptop yet. I have nothing bad to say about Sager.
According to what I have been reading, they are an amazing company, and a worthy notebook to claim half my life savings.
