No matter how well you take care of your laptop, it will eventually break down. Time and dust will take their toll on your precious computing device and expensive repair jobs will leave a gaping hole in your bank account. So an essential part of laptop repair is to insure you have access to cheap, good and warrantied repairs.

Step 1

The first step is to check your warranty, laptops repairs are for free or at partial cost if the damage is covered by the warranty, most laptops come with one, two and three year warranties. You can also choose to extend warranties by paying for extra coverage, Apple offers an extended two year warranty, on top of their obligatory one year warranty at an extra $299. It might seem expensive, but it policies any form of damage for up to 3 years, so in the long run it is a much cheaper bargain.

Also make sure when purchasing a laptop, that you are not responsible for shipping the laptop back for repair, as some companies and shops only commit to a laptop repair if the customer agrees to pay for shipping costs. This is a big no, your local reseller or major brand store should agree to commit to a repair locally, if not then they should be willing to pick up the tab for shipping and handling.

Once your warranty has run out, and youre afraid of major malfunctions being inevitable, go get some insurance.
