Toshiba wants to charge me for damage cause by their repair service!

The short version (will post a detailed version soon):
[indent][indent][b] •Bought a Qosmio X775-3Dv80 after Xmas from Amazon last year. Screen went bad the first week. Amazon sent me a new one
•3D and display card went south 2 weeks later on the second one. Amazon sent me another replacement.
•Wifi went out 3 weeks later on the 3rd one
•Toshiba repaired it (reinserted the wifi card)
•5 months later, wifi crapped out again
•Toshiba repaired and sent it back. However, upon reception back from the repair, I found a 2-inch long crack on one corner & a chip on the top cover, prying marks inside (trying to get the keyboard out?), and keyboard not seated all the way in. The shipping package undamaged
•Contacted Toshiba again and was promised a "complementary" one (I didn't ask for it)
•Days later when I called them about it, Tosh rep said NO such RECORD, but told me to send it back for repair.
•I did so last week. Got an email today from Toshiba saying warranty doesn't cover cracks, and wanting $175.99 to fix it.
•Called them today and got transferred to a case manager. I spent 30min with him explaining that Toshiba wanted to charge me for damage cause by the repairman, etc. He was like a piece of wood & just kept saying "Toshiba's warranty policy does not cover physical damages.", and repeating: " is there anything else I can help you with?" no matter what I tried to explain.
•The previous rep told me to send it back in for repair instead of sending me a different unit???

I am a computer (I T) consultant. Each time before I send the laptop in for warranty repair, I had to do a full backup, remove all personal/company/client info; and everytime the computer comes back from repair, I had to do a a restore. VERY TIME CONSUMING!
On top of that, I have spent hours upon hours with them in the last few weeks dealing with their support service. They all seem to be disconnected among departments, everything is poorly documented, and don't give a **bleep**.

As of now, they still have my laptop (warranty till Feb 2013).

I appreciate any suggestions as well.

Thank for reading.

I had an old toshiba laptop which drained it's battery in just 2 minutes literally. When I first got it it didn't even have a sound card. How can you forget that? My screen after 1 year started to flicker and have lines running across the screen, I hadn't even dropped it. I took six weeks before they finally gave my laptop back to me because of their lousy service. After that I thought that this brand was enough so I turned to Asus laptops and that was the best decision of my life. this was a couple of years ago, now I have TERRIBLE macs. (2)
