$800 warranty for $1200 laptop


Cubit, a Best Buy employee, posts the company's extraordinary warranty schedule for Geek Squad's fanciest plans: "Our managers tell us that we are offering this because its what customers asked for."

With these service plans, if your computer cannot be repaired and is replaced with a new one more than a year after purchase, the plan is fulfilled.

This means that if a customer buys a 1200 laptop and the 830 premium plan, then a year and one day later it is "junked out". Then that 830 plan is gone. Completely."

I suspect it's not actually real, and is in fact a scenario presented in an internal test the Objectivists use to identify loony True Believers who shouldn't actually be given anything important to do.
