    I would take it back and exchange it, that's not normal.

    I agree, take it back to where it was bought right away. ANYthing YOU do is likely to void the warranty.

    It might still be new enough that it's still under warranty. IF you can get in touch with the person you bought it from you might see if they still have the original warranty. I'm not sure if the warranty transfers or not, but it's worth a try.

    Aside from that, I'd say to leave it alone. If it's working OK there's no sense in messing with it. The old "if it ain't broke don't fix it" routine.

Also the seller I got it from said he doesn't know where the receipt also he said he got it from a friend.

    Asus told me that the tablet doesn't have warranty and that it was bought last year. WTF. I did told them first that there is a small dent. Did they just discontinued my warranty because of the dent I told them?

    hahahah They didn't even sell them before April26, 2011 in the US, and just a month earlier in Taiwan and other places. Maybe you got a demo?

    You might ask ASUS how much they'd charge to send it in and get it fixed. Otherwise you're out of luck- sorry!

    The slow typing while in a browser is a problem I've seen mentioned before. I doubt that it has anything to do with the crack in the case of yours.

    ASUS is a great tablet, has a few issues but so do all, the main thing I dislike is there weak case design, it looks like the one you got was probably held a lot on that corner and the weight of the tablet started to bend the frame and pull on the glass causing the adhesive to let go, it looks like you can see the adhesive in the crack, You may be able to have ASUS repair it at your cost or try to seal it your self very carefully with some adhesive and a soft rubber tipped clamp.

    How do you like the case? Does it fit good and is the material fairly strong? I have been looking at cases on Amazon also and I was going to get the ASUS Slim Case "Link Below" or the Portfolio Style like yours, I want one that is going to make the tablet edges sturdy and also act as a stand.

    You're better off getting what I got. It's cheap here where I live I would be paying heck a lot of money. I like how it look and no it's not perfect but I got more then what I paid for. 10 bucks man I would pay 30 bucks for this. Price is great some holes don't align perfectly but doesn't block any of my cameras. And it looks like lether. And the side there is space for a bit bigger tablet. But it doesn't bother me the tablet will not move in side. Magnet is cool not powerful but really why do one want so powerful mag so powerful can damage the electronic. Anyways I think it's great. It's a win for me. One would think for something like this should cost a lot. Why spend for something so expensive? If you can get more then one if wanted to spend that extra money. I must be stupid why one would pay so much. This type of case
    no matter what one would pay it still wont protect fully until there something really soft isolation for inside just in case it becomes drop.

    One of the bar mates gotten a lether one which cost him between 20-30 dollars but came out from another country. You might wanna check those out. Many brands offer to much money and most of the time if you're lucky will find great bargain. The extra money I would spend on microsd instead of expensive case that you can get better for lower price.
