What could be a simple item to replace in a desktop is now the price of the entire machine when we move to laptops.
-> Keep those warranties in place until you are willing to take the risk.
Last year I bought my first laptop. It is a HP Pavilion zd8110us. I was so happy with it until about 2 months after the warranty expired, a line in the screen appeared. 6 months after i got about 50+ lines ( i look like Im behind bars). Surprisingly, I went to HP forum and found a substantial amount of people with the same problem and all of them, started the painful experience about 1-2 months after the expiration of the waranty. Is this a coincidence? HP hasnt answered our prayers but definetely there is something wrong with this laptop. We need action. What can we do? Changing the screen is about $600+ and for what, so in 12 months I have to do it all over again? I need suggestions!!!
