I hear mixed reviews about Dell laptop and the need for warranties. I purchased my laptop with the basic 1 year "mail-in" warranty, because I had several people tell me that dell will offer the warranty even after you purchase, and sometimes at a better price. I susually stay away from extended warranties at the likes of Best Buy and CUSA. Should I do the same here? I'm not interested in at home support for OMG windoze is broken! type of issues. I'm a very savvy user. The only resaaon I would take the warranty is to cover hardware problems, or if it's worth it accidental damage, since I have a couple young kids that will be around the laptop.
