so your paying 6-8 a month for warranty...... (70-100 a year)

you do understand that all goods come with 12 months warranty minumum under UK law, and 36months under EU law ???
(the shops and manufacturers in the UK try thier damdest to wiggle out of the EU laws in the UK, as its a very grey area as there is no complience by in pushing them through, even though EU does superced on a lot of things)

laptops tend to have 12 months (with the hdd's and ram cards inside having 3years to lifetime warranty on them, depending on who made the bits)

are you paying for years 2 and 3 on an extended warranty, as that would make more sense than wasting money on year 1, which is already fully covered.

usually it is cheaper to go direct to the manufacture or go 3rd party warranty avoiding that 'high street retailer' ripp off rates.
