Hi there.

Any guarantee extenders for money is not worth it.

You get already top-notch warranty as soon as you walk away from the store. I understand that some manufacturers, like Apple, are only claiming to have it for one year. But. In real life you are more than safe because EU and Finnish laws are regulating warranties for longer time than that.

For a laptop I believe it is 2 Years and it can be even longer, for example if you can think buying it for years, so maybe the cost of laptop is thousand or something. No one buys stuff just to throw it out later - we buy stuff to consume for years. It is expected that one thousand laptop should work more than 2 years. In other words you can get laptop fixed even if 2 Years are over.

If you get any problems with warranty, don't just swipe it with extended warranties paying for that, but refuse to buy any of this kind. If you have problems after 1 Year warranty with Apple, you can complain to service or shop from where item is. If you are stuck after that, you can complain to local
Consumer Ombudsman, you can find more information from Kilpailu- ja kuluttajavirasto.

I hope this helps.
