    Windows laptops don't last

    even if it was lasting a year that not exactly great either. even if the odds of getting a good or bad laptop from a reputable brand. out of 4 laptops the odds of that happeneing at 6.25% if their odds of failure are lower than that then I must be satan for my luck to be that shit.

    Windows laptops don't last

    That what I was going for when I got the Dell. According to alot of influencers the XPS 15 was one of the best not necessarily the most economic but it was supposed to last a while. Im kinda sick of gambling when I purchase harware

    The most I did to that laptop was play the occasional match of overwatch or fortnite its not like I was going crazy with it. Half my extended family uses windows the other uses mac. All the macbooks in the family still run everyone else either switched over or have been replacing laptops every year. I'm not a fan of gambling every time I want to buy a laptop

    It wasn't only one time also I specifically put it to sleep I don't just close the laptop.

    Windows laptops don't last

    If "hit or miss" are the 2 options, the odds of every single one of my laptops failing is 6.25% my brother went through 2 macbooks in the time I had 4 laptops and each time mine failed his first mac still works and it survived a house fire. Argument doesn't exactly stand

    Windows laptops don't last

    Freshman year of high school they made us purchase chromebooks, they were all falling apart within week and for litterally no reason. Also not exactly looking for a desktop, already got one.

    I'm not blaming it on the OS. I've run HP, Alienware, ASUS. All with the same issues.
  8. I don't know about what experience the rest of you had but I have had so many issues running windows machines. I love windows and I really hate saying this but I might be switching to a MacBook in the near future. I graduated from high school summer '17 and as a graduation present my parents bought me a Dell XPS 9560 (32g RAM, 1tb NVMe SSD, 4k Display you get the idea) This is by far the nicest laptop I have ever owned and I really liked it.... for the first few months. Between then and now I have had to send in my laptop for various issues 5 times between initially purchasing it and my third semester of university. I wanted the Dell XPS because so many tech influencers recommended it and turns out its good for 3 months.... Currently the system has been with square trade for 4 weeks and I start my 4th semester of university Monday without a laptop. I'm praying I can just get the money from them and put it towards something that will last me for the next 6 years of higher education, or at least longer than the Dell :/

    Why you shouldn't have more than one warranty

    That's a fair argument

    Why you shouldn't have more than one warranty

    I see, it sounds like Best Buy to me. I just don't shop there because their return policy is shit and they're warranties are crazy expensive.

    Why you shouldn't have more than one warranty

    Y'all seem to really hate this HN place... Why do you shop there if it's so bad?

    Why you shouldn't have more than one warranty

    I am going to let them do it when I have time but for now when the laptop is "usable" and I am in classes I can't afford to go 2 weeks without a machine to use for my classes when literally every single class requires me to have a working machine.

    Why you shouldn't have more than one warranty

    I have litterally been on the phone with costco, square trade, and dell for the past 4 hours explaining that I have gone through 3 repairs and it hasn't worked and I want a new system, but because the manufacturer warranty expired I can't get a new system through dell and squaretrade/ costco want to repair it themselves before replacing it

    Why you shouldn't have more than one warranty

    This is common sense, yes, BUT my realtor has a 2 year warranty, then the credit card that I bought the laptop on has a warranty (included) not to mention the manufacturer. I bought the accidental damage warranty because I am an absolute animal and I have messed up my laptop before and didn't have the warranty and this was a 2000 machine and the warranty was only $100 so I got it in case I did something. Now that I have a manufacturing defect I am ripping my hair out.
