Summary: I just wasted two days trying to extend my warranty to find out I couldn't. There are places on the website that say I can extend the warranty within a year of purchase, and others that say within 90 days. I called the support hotline, went to "Product Support" to "Notebook" and the guy on the line told me to call the eStore. I called the eStore and they told me to call the support hotline. Called support again and another guy told me to call the eStore.
Summary: Dang. Thought I had spotted a bargain with the new Sandy Bridge 8-core processor (2670), 8 GB RAM and what I thought was a good video card. But this card is the nerfed version of the GTX 560M. This card has another .5 GB video RAM, but only 128 bit memory bandwith vs. 192 bit. It makes a difference people. I benchmarked Crysis today. Couldn't even get 30 frames at native res on only high settings. very high kicked this thing's butt. sorry folks. asus, that's a fail.
