    Wonder if those could be cut to fit the G74? Or are the feet shapes the same on the G73/G74?

    I think the small triangles will fit the 5 triangles on the G74, but the really small triangles would have to be cut. Nice to know we can get some atleast replaced. The long triangle like shapes I had on my G53 and those did end up coming off when I had it. They would get caught alot on my bag.

    The 2 very small triangles are under the touchpad and I dont think it would matter if you didn't have those since their isnt a lot of pressure put in that area in the first place. Nice find though for sure.

Their only way to resolve the issue of continually losing a rubber foot (in my case the front right) is to mail my unit away to them and accept that I may possibly be charged if they do not find it listed under a known warranty issue. Gosh! Really?!?!

    So, I am disabled from resolving this on my own now (short of purchasing a 1/4" rubber pad, cutting and gluing) and in order to resolve a poor design flaw I have to compromise a few weeks of income (I work from home using my laptop) to have it fixed. What a mess Asus is causing. It is not hard to stock parts for purchase.

    When I first purchased my unit the wireless card was nearly worthless. The range was poor and it cut out regularly. I read a solution of the forums (to replace it with an Intel WiFi Card), ordered one from Amazon and replaced it. I was able to resolve this on my own. The rubber feet thing is really bothering me.

    It urks me that I have to purchase 1/4" rubber, cut it perfectly with an exacto knife, use gorilla glue and fix it to resolve a poor design issue. This may be the tipping point for deciding to not purchase Asus in the future... a sad thing for our family and extended family... we have been long time Asus customers and supporters. It just seems as the economy has been bad and costs are cut so is the support for products.

    Asus, be wise and stand out above the rest... listen to your customers and learn from past mistakes.
