New Computer, a New Photo and a question

I am busy with organizing my life anew and so am not visiting here very much these days. But I did want to share with you that I bought my new computer and I am getting used to it. I love it. The screen is fantastic and my photos suddenly come alive as compared with my previous computer. As opposed to the reviews that said the keyboard is difficult to use, I am finding it a real pleasure. It has a "mac" feeling that makes me feel like I really have climbed up a step or two on the geek ladder. Your comments on my previous thread helped me make this decision.

My new computer is the Asus ultrabook: UX32VD that I had upgraded to 8 mega.  My question:  I got the computer for a good price here in Israel and at that price it comes with only 1 year guarantee. Do you think it is worth it to pay the almost $100 to add another 2 years to the guarantee?  I can do that within 45 days of buying it.

Here is a photo I just worked on :

That's a great picture! With regards to getting an extended warranty, that's your choice I suppose. I probably wouldn't because £65 is a lot for two more years, but then again if you got it for a cheap price, was it from a reputable source?

If you do it is a good idea to check the wording carefully to make sure what it covers as they can vary. I have extended warranty on mine and there was an option for onsite (home) or the type where you have to send it away to be fixed. 

Since I got mine (not the same make as yours) I have had phone help to put it right ( I switched it off by mistake when it was downloading/updating) and also a house call to fit a new screen.  I cannot recall how much I paid for the extended warranty. 

It is good to know you are pleased with your recent purchase. The picture is wonderful, I like the birds in flight, reflection in the water.

Fantastic photo, Sheri! I love it.

I don't have any advice about warranties. Sorry. I have a hard time assessing those sorts of decisions, too.

Well, I don't know what to do. And what does one do when one does not know what to do?  One goes to google and gathers information and writes an article about it. Still got about 42 days left to do that and make my decision.

So expect a wizzley on this topic within the next month.

Congrats on that new computer Sheri, and thanks for sharing that fabulous picture!

I also can not tell you about warranties, it's a wild guess as to what to do.  I look forward to the article.  In 2 years you can tell us if your decision was the right one!  :)
