1-yr Accidental Damage Protection & Express Repair [add $75.00]
2-yr Extended Service Plan with HP Express Repair [add $75.00]
3-yr Extended Service Plan with HP Express Repair [add $135.00]
Does it come with anything if you don't get any of those three?
Comes with a 1year warranty thru HP.... and you can ADD whatever insurance plan you want thru HP after you receive the unit from Costco.
My advice. go to the HP site, read thru ALL the insurance plans they have, Print out the details of each, write down the price... Highlight your needs and concerns...
The go to the Costco site to see if that plan is offered.
If it is, pricing is same /cheaper buy thru Costco at time of order.
If the plan you're interested in isn't listed on the Costco site buy the plan of your choice once you receive the unit.
I would go with something that has the "Accidental Damage Protection".... Screen on the base dv8000t was something like $943.. and $956 for the high res screeen.
That's "just" for the panel... If you drop it other parts are going to get damaged..
If you drop things allot you may want to consider:http://www.twinhead.com.tw/index_en.asp
