Just a few random questions I had rolling around in my head.
1. How easy is it to detect power surge damage on a laptop versus general hardware failure? Is the signature unmistakable?
2. If a laptop is identified as damaged by a power surge, will Acer repair under the standard 1 year warranty or be sticklers about it and refuse repair?
3. How common is it for them to send out a replacement instead of repairing the item that's under warranty?
And more of a general question:
How resilient are modern laptops to power surges? Has it gotten to a point where you really should always hook up your computers to strips with power surge protection to be safe?
Thanks in advance!
