Just a random thought: Why don't Expensive Laptops offer more warranty period?

I'm confused that even we pay more than a PC, the warranty by default (without extending it for extra money), is just 1-2 years for the most part?

The answer is boring and simple:

-Because they don't have to.


And someone at the companies sellin computers have probably made the math that extending warranty does not give a competitive advantage so they simply don't add any warranty. 


You can reason even further that all laptop manufacturers (except Apple) simply assemble components, all made/designed by other companies (except for the mother board PCB in some cases) and they simply don't want to be liable for stuff that someone else makes.

Warranty is commodity, and tbh consumers are too lazy to pick based on it. On business laptops 3 years on-site is kinda default, because the competition will also have it. On consumer grade stuff consumers haven't demanded it, and there might not be legislation to demand on it either.
