There was once a time when I used to build my own desktops and not purchase warranties on laptops. I don't have time for gaming anymore, so don't have a tower. As far as laptops go, I've been having to buy warranties since everything is soldered in. I have a MacBook Air and a Sony Vaio Z and I know if something goes wrong there's very little I'll be able to do; so I suppose I'll just go lineup at the Apple Store or Sony Style and listen to non-techy people ask how they check their email while I wait.
