Best Buy has done the right thing, it is unfortunate that I had to Contact their Customer Care department to get something done, ok this is what happened since my last post. On march 5th I received this email:

A couple of days later I received a Phone message from the Manager from Geek Squad telling me that they were going to pay for my laptop repair. This is 4 weeks after I had dropped it off. I called her back on the following Thursday. She was trying to convince me into letting them repair my laptop, this was a little suspicious to me, and when i asked about the so called “case damage” to my laptop, she had played it off, I told her that i wanted to inspect my laptop before i agreed to the repair. Laptops are sympathetic it you drop them, they may not malfunction right away but later down the line they will.
So on that 3/8/07 i inspected my laptop and the back of the case was damaged, I pointed out to the manager “Hugo” (excellent manager). and he offered to replace my laptop. So I have a New laptop.
