Just personal opinion but I think warranties are pretty much useless. The accadential protection warranty might be worthwhile. But if you read the statistics electronics that fail within the first month 90% of the time. Also there are so many things that are no covered under warranty. And being a technical genius I've taken apart all of my laptops and I'm willing to bet that voids my warranty.
I don't think you can get the Accidental Ins (Idiot insurance) WITHOUT th Extended warranty..........I agree ex warranties are a waste to all but a handful of users. I think you can buy the other type at numourous websites if you do a search.
Ah *lol* Fair enough then. Well, basically you have to convince yourself that you do want a laptop (assuming you still do!), then just ignore that voice in your head that says 'don't spend that much!'. Purchasing online is a big help for that I've found, you don't actually feel like you're spending money
