Generally, we’re not big fans of extended warranties. Computers depreciate too quickly to make it worthwhile. The exception being AppleCare. Apple repairs are not only expensive, but Apple products retain their value longer.
The other thing we’ve found is that companies exclude all sorts of stuff from these warranties. It’s so bad that BestBuy is involved in a class-action suit for overpromising and under delivering.
When in doubt, ask us. We’re unbiased since we don’t sell computers or warranties. Salespeople may claim all sorts of stuff, but it’s what’s in the contract that makes the difference.
