So when i took the tp out of the sealed plastic "bag" it shipped in from the box. i went to turn it on, i noticed what i thought was dust on the screen. So i wiped it down with microfiber cloth it came with, and it wouldnt go away. when the unit booted up, it was more profound, now with the backlight on, i held it at an angle and saw it was under the glass. I have emailed Asus about it, and no response yet. Does anyone know how long the turnaround time is for replacement? -Or- I can simply void my warranty (which is what i do for a career anyway) and simply wipe the underside of the glass panel with a microfiber cloth. The only issue i have is, does this come apart the same way an ipad does, where you slip a hard plastic tool between the rubber surround and glass? thanks guys/gals.
