    Is there a way to tell if my G72 is a BB model?

    Hello all,
    I recently purchased a G72GX from an online retailer and I was wondering if there was a way to look up weather my serial was a best buy model or a Asus direct model(if thats what they are called).
    I tried searching for it in the forum search, but 'best' and 'buy' are too short to search..

    thanks for any help in advance;

    EDIT: G72GX RBBX05

    An Asus employee can probably determine that from the serial. What's the model number besides G72GX?

    I think that IS the model number. And I'd be willing to bet it's a BB model.

    Why, is it gimped.

    usually a RBBX05 indicates a best buy model.

    Yes, the BB models are indeed Best Buy.

    not too gimped.. the lcd ribbon is loose, i think. From what I've been able to look up online, that seems to be a common problem w/ best buy models.

    You gonna try to get BB to fix it or are you going to RMA it to Asus?

    I am completely comfortable with dissassembly, so I think I am going to see if its just loose, and if I can just plug it back in and be fine, I will do that, but if not, I was thinking of going back through the ebay seller, he is willing to get the shipping, whereas asus wants me to pay shipping.. :/

    Good luck!

    That sucks! You would think they would pay since it was their crap assembly/qc that caused the problem.
