Warranty and Support
We recommend you purchase a Dell 4-year warranty, plus 4-year Complete Care Accidental Damage warranty. Our experience has shown that this warranty coverage is well worth it - we see dozens of spills and drops every year, resulting in damage to system boards that can cost between $700-$800 without Accidental Damage.
Apple does not offer Accidental Damage, but their standard warranty is only one year - we highly recommend extending AppleCare to at least 3 years.
Warranty coverage is more expensive in the short term, but you will take your laptop with you everywhere you go for 4 years . . . the warranty coverage has saved many students!
The University of Scranton is both a Dell and Apple Certified repair center.
