Default Extended Warranty worth it? - 01-12-2010, 09:04 PM

Dell called me up today and offered a 4 year extension of my warranty for $100. I verified that price online, also. My current warranty expires in 2 days. This extension would last until 2014. I can add Accidental Damage for an additional $99.

So for $200 does anyone think it's worth protecting my mini 9 until 2014? Or is it just better to save the money and buy a new netbook in a year or two when my mini 9 finally dies from heat exhaustion (that was my original plan)

Thanks for the input.

Psh, hell no. Keep that Benjamin and save it towards your next Mini.

Unless you're a big klutz I'd keep the $200 for the next model of whatever Dell (or someone else) releases.

It all depends, if you literally abuse your mini, then the accidental damage is sometimes worth it but $200 is a little pricey for a mini that has been cheaper than $200.

On a side note, if you absolutely love your mini 9, then it might be a good investment since they no longer make them...

I personally wouldn't do the $200 option but $100 might be ok. But then again, if my mini died, I would rather put the money towards a new/better one...
