Default warranties have been 90 days for quite a few years. One instance of a Dell catching fire should not compare to the many instances of Apple laptops catching fire (http://www.gizmodo.com/gadgets/laptops/ibook-in-flames-film-at-11-177941.php). Nor does it compare to the many instances of Apple laptops overheating and burning the user. Oh wait, that's right...Apple calls them notebooks now.Do a Yahoo search (not Google unless you like spam results) on laptop and fire. You'll find that the batteries (which are not made by Dell or Apple) are always at fault. If the laptop overheats, the battery could overheat, resulting in smoke or even fire. Apple's laptop designs tend to overheat more than any other brand (one of the reasons for their low quality) b/c they're designed to look good, not to function well. They're very quiet, but it comes at the cost of the laptop become dangerously hot.
Wild absolutely wild video. Where the heck is Officer Farva and AZWildcat - we need to argue about this!Oingo
What do you guys/gals think about computer warranty? I thought getting a long warranty would be smart, but I'm starting to reconsider. I take good care of my computer and understand how to keep it running clean, so I'm thinking about just getting a 1 or 2 year to save money.
