no thats not true. you can buy a advanced warranty:
3years pickup, even if you brake you laptop.
(accidentally, of course )
and i think even if you don't buy it they pick it up
at your home for the first year.
i just got my ferrari today and must say it's soooooo great
i love it!
the fan noise is not that loud -> it's impossible to hear
it when you play a game or watch a movie.
i don't know the dba because i don't...
