Why, oh why!
What have I done to deserve this cruel fate befall on me!
I'm just kidding but yep. Got a crack on my speaker too. Bought the official HP case alongside the firesale and kept it in there all the time, never dropped it, never handled it roughly, did take it with me on a road trip but stayed in the pouch most of the time.
Was using it again today, noticed something unusual along the bottom of the speaker, it was the long- fabled and feared crack! It was like seeing the legend come alive with my own eyes.
So, I'm seeing bunch of different advises on what I should be doing with one general consensus that the repair guys need a note to explain what's going on and that shipping takes forever.
I have a feeling that this will be more bothersome than I'd like with me living in Canada and all. -_-
*Edit: After reading bunch of the posts on this thread, I'm even afraid to send it in for repair now *shivers
What do you say guys, should I take the risk? Or live with it?
This actually made me even more appalled that HP was trying to sell this thing for $499 a pop now. Unfinished software at release, flawed hardware design, poor support etc etc.
