Unplugged...

Sorry for the lack of posts the past 2 weeks. My laptop had a few repairs that needed to be done. Yea... they really needed to be done months ago. First Baby Dear lovingly ripped one of the keys straight off the keyboard, next, the power cord needed to be replaced... for the 2nd time, and then the laptop screen became partially detached from the base so that it didn't open and close properly.

Anyway, it turns out that the entire keyboard needs to be replaced. All for one key... one that I don't even use. But atleast it's covered under the warranty that I had paid extra for.

I don't usually like those extended warranties that they try to sell you for every freaking purchase you make. Most of the time they are a complete waste of money and I run for the hills and stay clear away from them. BUT, with laptops, they are essential. Laptops are known for the fact that they don't last long and are often plagued with problems. Don't get me wrong, I looove laptops for their portability and convenience, but you must get the extended service warranty. If the problems are bad enough, they will replace your laptop free of charge to you... I've been there, done that.

So the keyboard should be covered, and the cord is definitely covered. But the screen may not be covered because they may consider it an accidental breakage. Which really isn't fair since I did nothing to it... it just popped out one day when I lifted the screen open. So we'll see about that.

Hopefully I will get my laptop back sometime this year. I miss all my online bargain hunting and sharing my good deals and coupon codes with you. I'll try and post occasionally when I can borrow a computer for alittle while. In the mean time, try not to miss me too much.
