Best standard warranties for laptops?

#1StarksPosted 10/28/2013 1:12:29 AM
Looking for a brand that...

* Doesn't give you only 30 days to upgrade your warranty service level or length
* Are not complete jerks about the RMA process
* Optionally provides on-site repairs and speedy shipping of parts

I know Dell does all 3 nicely, anyone else?

Any brands to avoid? I heard Acers are great until they break.

Asus has accidental warranty on their laptops. As in if you accidentally break your computer i.e drops, spills, etc.

Acer has decent warranty. Sent in a couple of laptops before, took two weeks and everything was fine after.

I like Asus

But I can't figure out which of their laptop series are good

X, S, V...

So confusing and they all look good on paper

As much as I want a G-series,,,

They're gigantic

Thicker and bulkier than better equipped Clevo/Sager machines

That being said, I have looked around for them on the cheap because there's always a sucker on craigslist

Asus has generous terms for their warranties. 3 years plus accidental damage IIRC. HOWEVER, and this is a big however, they have absolutely horrible customer service and term around time when it comes to the RMA process.

I have RMA'd a dead laptop (mobo) and 2 other dead mobos, and the turn around time was over a month for all of them. Each time I had to call countless times to get status updates; the whole process wasn't moving along at all. They will also attempt to "repair" your equipment instead of issuing you new components. I had to send a mobo back twice once because their repairs weren't adequate. They also make you pay to ship the equipment to them (this is normal for a lot of companies however). I like Asus products, but after the last time this happened I swore to never purchase from them again.

I have never dealt with Lenovo customer service, but I hear their RMA process is pretty friendly.
