It might be worth $800. But nowhere near $1400.

I dont even understand where they plan on getting that from. There inst a Latitude 5570 available with those specs. At least not availble for consumer purchasing


You could get something better for $1100 like The XPS 15, which is much better and then a 3-Year accidental warranty from square-trade for $250

The issue with Squaretrade is that the warranty decays as you use it. That's one reason why it's not super expensive. Meaning, when you buy the warranty, you're putting an insurance policy on the laptop that is equivalent of the value of said laptop. So if the ASUS N550JK is $1099, and the display dies and you invoke the warranty to repair it, and they charge $100 for the display, then your remaining warranty is $999. If the whole laptop dies after that and you need it replaced, you have $999 left on your policy, and will need to pony up the extra $100 to pay the difference on the new $1099 laptop.

It's really not a big deal, IMO. Most of the time it's one thing at a time that gets damaged, not a whole laptop going up in flames. Squaretrade provides a really good way to get a long term warranty for cheap. I'd personally suggest you go with This one.

I'm not just saying all of this to say it either, I got the same one for my dad's laptop since his last one finally went down by a coffee mug falling off of its handle.

I recently did the same research when I was thinking about replacing my Hero 3+ Black with a Session 5. I ended up going with the Runcam Split for now but what I found is that it's best to just get a new Session 5 from whichever authorized GoPro dealer that has it cheapest and then buy this SquareTrade 3-year accidental damage plan. SquareTrade is widely regarded as the best warranty company and they'll either send you a new camera or write you a check for the full amount you paid if that model is no longer available. They won't hassle you and they won't try to replace it with a different camera that might be a lesser model. Plus there's zero deductible on the camera plans.

I'm getting that same plan for my Runcam Split once it arrives. Can't beat $12 for 3 years of accidental damage coverage.

> Alternatively, get a SIM card on contract, as these don't need to be activated via PostIdent. It doesn't have to be a 24 month contract, there are 12 month (or even shorter) contracts.

Drillisch has a huge amount of different contracts on amazon all of them can be canceled within a single month.

Caveats are: O2 network meaning bad signal in many areas and if you go over the data cap they can charge you 2€ for 200mb up to three times (although you can disable that 'feature'). Otherwise i didnt have any problems with them.

Fry's has it for $599 but only if you can pick up in-store. So, if you have a Fry's nearby, check if the camera is still in stock. Also, Ebay has it for $650. You can just purchase your Accidental warranty from Amazon or any website

Ooh, that Toshiba looks nice.
You (or anyone else) wouldn't happen to know if is there just an empty spot on the body when you choose not to have an optical drive (I'd just get a USB one) or is the body thinner?
Also, would anyone be able to recommend an accidental damage protection policy? I'm looking at SquareTrade's.

Add-on insurance is usually a scam because the companies behind it are fly-by-night. Today, they are Square Trade. Tomorrow, they will be someone else when their existing obligations become too much to handle. It's easy to offer cheap insurance when you have so many ways of weaseling out of it. Look at negative Amazon reviews of them:

Geek Squad is at least has an actual in-store presence, although who knows how long that will stick around.

Asus repair is a joke, it's true. Among people who have done it, you get stuck in this loop of either getting refurbished units or hastily repaired ones. Asus tries to run out the clock on the warranty.

I've never had to deal with Samsung, however, I've never had their products break on me either. I don't assume it's much better than Asus if something does break though.

But it sort of depends on what you think a fair lifespan is. If your concern is getting a lemon that conks out in the first couple months, then your best protection is to buy from a retailer with a liberal return policy like Amazon, Costco or Target.
