Such as same day repair etc. added to said machine?
There are slight difference in service plans for the business lines and home lines at Dell for instance. If you went with retail, maybe a week for each fix.
But no one tells you such things.
I just wanted to send out a head's up on Gateway. Here is my experience: I bought a new laptop about four weeks ago from Gateway. I own my own small engineering business and the laptop appeared to be the perfect thing. After 2.5 weeks the computer quit working right in the middle of my completing a computer model. Gateway diagnosed a bad hard drive and mailed me a new one to install myself! After a delay (I was away on business when it went down), I was able to install the hard drive. The computer immediately failed again and gateway diagnosed that something else was wrong! Now the computer is being mailed to some repair place and is gone for another ten days or so! At some point I will have owned a computer that has been out of commission for half the time I have owned it. Thumbs down for Gateway who wouldn't even agree to overnight me the service package! My small business has taken a significant hit from this purchase and we will seek out other options in the future!
