Do you know the difference between an extended warrantee and laptop insurance?
Many people get the two mixed up, especially when purchasing a new laptop or notebook computer in store.
You can just about be certain that the sales staff serving you will try and upsell you an extended warrantee program to accompany your new laptop, notebook or tablet computer.
The problem is that they often refer to the extended warrantee as laptop insurance, but it is important to be able to distinguish between the two different products.
An extended warrantee is just that, it is an extension of the usual 1 years manufacturers warrantee and is normally offered from 1 years extension to 5 years. Unfortunately, many saes staff when questioned by consumers if it covers accidental damage have been told yes in the past, however, this is normally incorrect and it only comes to light when a claim for damage is made and then rejected by the warrantee company.
Laptop insurance on the other hand will normally cover accidental damage, theft and mechanical breakdown (the same as an extended warrantee) for as long as the laptop is insured.
