After discovering that the mb is around $500, Iíve decided to just buy a new laptop. Iím looking at a Lenovo now. I wonít support Asus anymore. I found the 920 at New Egg. Usually laptops come with a 12 month warranty. I contacted Lenovo and asked them how the warranty works. They said because Lenovo doesnít carry the 920 anymore, if there is an issue with the laptop, I would have to deal with New Egg directly and not through Lenovo.
I thought manufacturer warranty is always handled through the manufacturer? i.e. If I buy a Sony tv through Best Buy and there is a defect or issue with it, I would deal directly with Sony and not Best Buy. Is the person I talked to at Lenovo on crack?
