I'm also curious about where to get the touchpad? I've seen some references to asusparts.eu which I don't mind ordering from outside of the US if I can get the part. I'm just not entirely convinced from their website that the part I'm ordering is the exact right one for my rig. I'm in a G73SW and the part it gives I think is for the JW. I don't know if that makes any difference or not. I also saw that they had 3 different SW's, it looks like versions (a1, a2, a3) and I don't have a clue which one I have. My model number on my unit only says G73SW.
What do you think?
I really appreciate the time your spending with me to get this right. Thank you so much!
