GT65 Worries

Thinking about trading in my gt60 520\4 for a GT65 Rimini that is a year old. Would appreciate any comments and experiences from any one who owns one or any advice about what to be aware of.The reason I am asking the question is because a few of the limited reviews I have found on line have been negative with main issues being damp in the floor, Whale I heating system loosing communication and poor build quality. Hopefully they are not all like this.Any information appreciated.See More
