    Insurance / warranty phone call...

    I've received 2 letters and had a phone call today concerning my warranty running out on my macbook, I am thinking about taking up the extended warranty from the person who phoned me... but... i wondered after hearing stories could it be a con? Or should I go for it...
    i don't want to loose out on £155 really....

    the offers i've had are... £155 for 2 years - (the phone call)
    £195- 2 years
    £455 - 4 years...

    i should imagine in 2 years time i'll want a new mac so no need for the 4 year warranty really...

    any suggestions or comments are welcome!
    thanks xx

    Warning Warning Warning.....con!!!!!



    that's what i;ve wondered, after hearing stories about orange, o2 etc giving out details of phone contracts ending soon... but, they are right my warranty does end this weekend, but i bought my macbook on monday and they said it ends saturday which seemed weird!
    really can't deceide what to do lol. thanks though

    You should have received the warranty information in your packaging and then should register your mac. Shops sell details too.

    You can insure your mac separately as part of your contents policy against accidental damages etc. Never sign up to anything over a phone hun

    I'd keep the £155 and put it safe for repairs or a new one, in the unlikely event that something does go wrong, how long have you had it now, and how many problems have you had?

    could always ask them for phone number and tell them youll ring them back to find out if it is genuine.

    Remember without a warranty you always have the sales of goods act to fall back on 'isnt of acceptable quality' if anything majorly wrong happens with it.

    i'll have had it a year on monday, it was a uni present from my mum. so i figured the 2 year warranty would last untill i finished uni. The only problem ive had is wear and tear lol, from me spending too much time on it. (The casing where my right wrist is has worn away)

    i can't remember any information about the packaging, i might phone up the mac shop in town concerning the phone call...

    I've looked up insuring it but couldn't work out the info about insuring pc's / macs. Never mind...

    thank you both...x

    uhuh, that makes me remember something else... he did use a sort of preasure tactic that "it runs out saturday" and "it's only for today" ...hmm... i've really got to think about this! Especially with other money issues atm! grr.

    better off taking out the extended warranty with another company (e.g. direct line).
