I'm stuck between the A730 and the Loox 720.
Frankly, I'd pay $50 extra for the loox because it has better battery, a jog dial, and a frontal speaker.
However, with the right kind bad luck, my over-$600 investment can become some useless junk, because I don't know what kind of warranty service I can expect from FSC. I mean it supposedly has a "global warranty," but somehow I don't feel too reassured on getting help if and when the loox starts acting funny.
I guess I could e-mail FSC UK and ask if they'll fix it if I mail it to them, but what if they say no?
Suddenly the lack of jog-dial and the speaker on the back doesn't seem like a major issue, if you know what I mean. (I still shiver at the idea of having to switch batteries after 2,3 hours of use though... I just KNOW I'll be too lazy for that...)
But I should reasonably expect kind help from ASUS customer service, right? because they do have a HQ in the US.
If anyone can tell me about either the FSC or ASUS warranty service in the US, especially on A730W or the loox 720, please share with me.
