Just a heads up, be careful if you buy the warranty from SquareTrade, under as Frequently Bought Together.. they automatically stick you with the $600-700 package, but once you pay for this laptop after tax (just the laptop) it comes to $713.51 I was lucky enough to cancel mine quickly when I realized that the insurance wouldn't cover this laptop if anything were irreparable and they had to issue me a new one, as the lady told me over the phone, in order for that to happen you need to have the complete cost of the laptop covered in your warranty price. So I canceled it before it charged to my card, and went with the $700-800 coverage. Just thought I'd give a heads up to everyone. I bought this laptop for my daughter, I will be having her write a review on it once it gets here and she has a chance to try it out for awhile. I rated this 5 stars for the warranty, because they were extremely helpful and got it transferred over to my daughters name in less than 10 minutes, and it took less than half an hour for it to receive to my email and everything verified.
