So far our laptop has been dropped a couple of times and left out in the rain. Though this would destroy a normal laptop, our G75 is doing well except for some water that got in the screen. The damage is very slowly fading away, but at the cost of a darker screen which all in all isn't so bad.

Thanks for building a quality product, Asus.

Oh, if someone does manage to junk one I would be interested in a screen. Could barely afford the laptop so definitely cannot afford a new screen.

Just a quick question? If you could barely afford the laptop then how do you leave it out in the rain and drop it not once but a couple of times. I mean it does go to show how well these computers are built but maybe you should try and protect your investment a little better. But to each his own.

You can use your ADP to get a new screen

I excluded that tidbit because it's a bit embarrassing. All I will say is my fiancee wasn't home so I decided to see if I could drink until I could smell colors... or something like that. Anyway, apparently I decided to go singing in the rain or some such foolishness that evening. As far as the dropping goes, my fiancee has very bad wrists (she's a writer) and drops it sometimes.

It's cool just kinda wield to hear something like a laptop catching some rain and being dropped. I know if my wife dropped the Lappy I would give her the stern eye lol.

Good to hear your lappy passed the torture test.
I would use the ADP, you have 60 days to activate from purchase date.
So RMA your lappy ......and good luck!

To bad him saying he left it out and got it wet voided his warranty.

That's not really true, if you activate the ADP within 60 days you are covered for, drops, spills, and rain damage would be water damage like"spills" any kind of accidental damage.

Rain damage is considered flood damage that the warranty does not cover. Asus could chose to or not to honor the warranty.

The ADP is always there. If you register within 60 days you keep a 'free' 6 month extension
