The reasons I get a 4 year warranty are...

I'm not a techie and just want someone to fix my computer if need be

They give nice incentives to upgrade to 4 years

It helps alot with resale value


For example, let's say in 3 years I want to sell the laptop and get something else, it's nice to advertise that laptop still has a year warranty on it....makes potential buyers feel more at ease buying used computer....

ah, interesting, but you can save a lot of money by just sticking with the 90 day warranty...you can upgrade more stuff too like your video card. ram. cpu...

EDIT: and plus if you have a problem. you can post your problem right here, and i bet many people would be glad to help you

True, but then I still have to figure out what I'm doing....

To me paying what will turn out be an extra 15% on 4 year warranty is probably worth it both for peace of mind and again, for resale value....

But I hear ya....

Any more price quotes contestants?

Nope...there are deals that end on Friday, so I'm debating whether to buy or not...

It SEEMS like a decent deal...but I haven't priced before this week....so who knows?

That's why I'm asking you guys opinions...

To all those replying, remember I'm NOT a techie, so from your average consumer perspective...."WHAT WOULD YOU PAY?"

Default OK here's the price

Well, ok, usually like to get people's opinions before I say the price, because inevitably people always say you can get a better deal....but here goes

Total price for computer, printer, warranty, shipping is $1050 after rebate (but before freakin' NY taxes)

Thoughts?
