you have to understand that down the road it may be slower, but the cheapest lappies are still going to cost way more than the warranty. Plus there is no guarantee that you are going to have $750 coupons, nor will there be discounts if you need a laptop right away. The warranty for the 3rd and 4th year are actually very cheap about $65 to add additional year. It is the first two years that cost the most like $300 for the first two years. so $65 versus paying $200-$300 for an LCD, there is absolutely no question I'm going to pay the extra $65 up front.
even though your lappie in 1-2 years ain't gonna be worth as much, it still will be worth more than $65 that it cost for the 3rd year warranty. Plus, if you buy a laptop that is the same you won't have the warranty. If you buy new, you are going to pay substantially more than what it cost you to buy the 3rd or 4th year to get the cheapest model of the laptop.
If you are going to carry the laptop around alot, i would recommend the complete care, but that is me and judging from my past experiences with laptops. Currently, i have replaced four 8-cell batteries, which means that it would have costed me about $800 to replace them.
as with any insurance, it is a gamble. i would say most electronics no need to buy extended warranties. for laptops that you are going to move around with, there is higher probably for damage, so i would recommend CC.
