I've just brought a laptop in somerset, and I was told that there wasn't a repair falcitiy in this area, and that if it went wrong, it would have to be sent off, which could take several weeks depending on problem.
I already knew that in most cases of laptops they went back to the manufacturers if there was a fault. This suggestion by the shop that by buying a extended guarantee @£10.99 a month would avoid this, is a bit of a white lie, as I've been around this forum long enough to know different. But I do know that in a years time I will get a letter telling me that it is almost out of the manufacturer guarantee and would I like to take up the offer of yes you guest it £10.99 a month. So I think I shall save myself some money now, and then prehaps take there offer later.
Josie hit a nail about 'extended ' warranties By not taking one out on purchase, and putting a similar sum aside during the 1st year[sellers responsability]] that loot [£120 or so] will pay for a repair or well on the way for the price of replacement in year two- and still have the dosh -with interest.
