I bought a Sony Vaio laptop from Currys just before Christmas last year.
It was advertised with a 1 year warranty. That's all it said on the advert/webpage.
Recently, the battery stopped working and I can only run from the mains power.
I contacted Sony (who by the way, had cut 6 months off my warranty - but they recified it on proof of receipt).
2 weeks later I get a message saying that " do I have a friend or a shop where I can check the battery to see if it is faulty or the laptop".
I said no, no local shops stock just the batteries and I am the only person I know with a Vaio.
The next abrupt email I got basically said that they weren't going to do anyhting unless I can check it myself and that batteries are only covered up to 6 months anyway so just buy a new battery"
Surely, if I purchased a ULTRA MOBILE laptop with 1 year warranty the battery should be covered as well?
Am I wrong in thinking this really isn't on? Or not?
