|Ok however if you are going to make blanket statements that you pretend to be fact then you should have some backing. You make these statements as if you know something that others don't and you even state that it is a fact. I consider this un truths a lie if you will to back up your opinion. That's just wrong. Some people will believe you when you say this and go out get the one year and they will be the one who's laptop screen stops working after their warranty is up.|
|Get the 3 yr warranty it adds up to just pennies a day, most systems will begin to have problems in the first thirty days and also after the first year,and if you have to send it in for repair without warranty then you are looking at about 700 dollars in repair cost, parts plus Labor...unlike other electronic devices you carry the laptop around all the time so it gets more ware and tear than other devices.... and remember things break down when you least want them to thats life and you will kick yourself for not taking out the extra peace of mind that an extended warranty provides and remember if you never have to use it it only cost you the price of a can of soda a day for piece of mind..|
|the 3 year warranty im getting with mine covers theft and anything at all going wrong with the laptop, whether by accident or faulty parts. paying a little extra. Which is not much when u consider insurance companies want more then that per year and they dont offer the same onsite replacement dell does. Then take into account laptops are one of the MOST stolen things (well in this country anyway) and u have yourself a great peace of mind.
Tombo do you deliberately choose to go against all logic in your point of view just to point noobs in the wrong direction and start a debate with everyone else?
|To highlight my point, show me somewhere i can go to buy all the parts i want for my laptop, put it together myself and save over $1000 in the process? you cant!|

When I go to work, I am in and out of different aircraft up to 6 times a day, with the potential of going through security as many times. When I get to a layover point, I have a crew van driver tossing the bags into a crew van, same thing when I leave for the next departure. I also have a 2 year old at home who, although is very good, is still 2 years old and accidents are still more plentiful around youngsters.
As far as airport security is concerned, yes, it is their responsibility if they drop it, however, I am the one who removes it from the bag, places it in the bin and reverses the procedure after scanning. I am not by nature a clutz, if I were I wouldn't be doing the job I do, however I have seen these things dropped numerous times by both security and by passengers and other crew members. If I drop it, I am now covered. If they drop it, it is now easier for me to say I dropped it, and I am covered. I now don't have to deal with the beauracracy of trying to claim it through a brain dead government agency. I will save you the math and state that it can go through security over 1000 times in a year.
As far as at home, I could lock it away in a closet and not use it, but that kind of defeats the purpose of having a computer. I could also put it away between uses, but that is not very convenient. No, I choose to leave it out, running and available for use. And the little guy, as good as he is, will still run around with sticky fingers, full of food, and juice cups that drip. Although this risk is, IMHO, very low.
Tombo, may very well be correct that it is only for peace of mind, but from what I have seen, it is more than that and worth it for me. I would be much more willing to agree with him for desktop systems, and maybe he doesn't leave the house with his laptop, so for him, completecare would be a very expensive insurance policy. For me, it's an inexpensive one.
Let the flames begin.
