So, I've had my new G74SX for less then a month, and now it seems the power supply unit has decided to die out on me. Great! Anyway, I've called ASUS customer service and they're on the case, but it's going to take like 3 weeks before they repair it and ship it back to me? So I'm wondering if the GS74SX power supply is used with any other ASUS machines. I noticed that the G71G/GX/G72/G73 also has a 150W power supply, is this the same?

I believe they use the same connector . . .

From what I am able to gather the G71G/GX/G72/G73 charger is 150W @ 19V, 7.9A while the G74SX charger is 150W @ 19.5V, 7.7A. If they have the same connector dimensions, then they should be interchangeable. The charger I have is the "ADP-150NB D", and the one I'm looking at is the "90-XB06N0PW00050Y".
