DarKStar - sdorry to say, but I saw plenty of Asus with bad caps... Currently they love to use fake Panny FJ caps... And don't even get me started on these polymers from VERY questionable sources based on stolen formulas, known to fail... Just wait

Easy to throw away $100 or so dollars when it's MOMMY and DADDY's money.

Notice that the power supply that he blows up is some old P.O.S.- It's not actually the TX750- look at the sleeving on the cables.

He just packed it in the bag and box.

Agreed,

One day that kid will have to slave away for 10 hours to make $100. Then he'll learn the value of money.
