Well, I've finally done it. I've thought about laptops to the point that I've managed to confuse myself beyond concentration.
How important do you think technical support for a laptop is? Myself, I know diddle about repairing a laptop. They're damned near impossible.
But how much would you pay for hardware support? I'm looking at a deal that's $1,850.00 without support, because this particular laptop is used. A whole 3 weeks old, but used nonetheless. And the technical/hardware support contract is non-transferable.
The comparable new model is $3,600.00 or so, but includes a few things the other doesn't:
So, that's $1,800 for what would cost me about $700 (ballpark) to add to the used, which means technical/hardware support is going to cost me about $1,000.00 - $1,100.00.
