    I am switching to a P34W, still from Gentech (I was too impatient to wait for a total refund and buy elsewhere), it should arrive on Monday, so we will see how it goes. The P34W ending up costing a bit less than the P35W, around $4...I wonder how they are planing on refunding me that (to be fair, I was hopping for some commercial gesture on their behalf, like extra ram offered or something after the P35W mess).

    Did you get the replacement yet? I saw lots of open box P35W on newegg with quite a good price, one that has a real good price I think is the P25x with 880m 8GB, it sells for $1499

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&IsNodeId=1&N=100025325 50001314

    If that's still an option for you, just FYI

    Oops, sorry for the lack of updates! Now I am posting all the time on the other P34W forum. Yes, I received it, and it is working! I'll probably update this topic in a few days. So far so good, apart from the temps that I can't lower.

    glad you finally got a working notebook :) did they refund you the $4?
    Did you repaste it yet by the way?

    Okay, quick update:
    I am having a lot of problems that I am mainly blaming on Windows 8.1 (what a piece of %#@€?!).
    No, they didn't refund me the $4, but I will mention that when I will email them about the repaste they haven't done (because if they did, shame on them for such a poor job: at least they didn't charge me for that with the P34W).

    Word of advise: don't take the repaste option from GentechPC: they WILL NOT do it, LIE to you, but KEEP your money.

    What problems are you having?
    In my case as well I believe they forgot to repaste (or they did a bad job) since the temps were no different from the stock paste

    Some BSOD, freezes, crashes, black screen of death at the startup (a very known problem of windows apparently). And I don't think they forgot, they literally told me by email that they did the repaste :/...What I had was very similar to the stock paste according to some people on another forum.
