i think these steps should be sufficient:

1. 'stress tests' on cpu and gpu; i would suggest you play the most resource-taxing games for long hours and then observe both cpu/gpu temperatures (http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php); for synthetic tests, some prefer using prime (http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft/) or intel burn test (http://majorgeeks.com/IntelBurnTest_d5987.html) for cpu; furmark (http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/) for gpu. when you do the tests, also take note of your room temperatures. for ssd, you can use atto disk benchmark (http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Benchmarks/ATTO-Disk-Benchmark.shtml) to generate the results and then compare it to the ones found on the internet; for ram, run memtest86 (http://www.memtest.org/) and pass the tests at least 3 cycles (it will take a few hours; some insights and guideline here (http://rog.asus.com/127362012/overclocking/memtest-user-guide-for-rog-motherboards/)); normally you can run memtest86 from a linux livecd (a linux-based livecd/usb is a handy tool for trouble shooting also).

2. check display panel for dead pixels - check your screen to find weird dot-like spots. while you're at it, check for weird display artifacts (might be an early sign of faulty gpu)

3. check keyboard backlight when sleep/hibernate;

4. check speakers and headphone jack;

5. check wifi/lan/BT connections;

6. check usb ports, or whatever ports that you will use;

7. check your battery and power adapter.

preferably do the above before the return window is over.
