Perhaps before committing into the 3rd year warranty, ask yourself these qns:

  1. How long do I expect to use my computer for? - if it is a long-term investment, that you have put in a relatively high sunk cost (e.g 1.8k) then perhaps the additional coverage would be a relatively affordable top-up

  2. Has my previous gadgets required frequent servicing? - this might give u an insight to how well (or poorly) maintained your devices are based on daily habits or experiences (e.g. say if accidentally dropping ur laptop once every week is a norm, hmm a warranty might be a good safeguard)

  3. What am I using this laptop for? - if it is about running intensive programme such as coding and engineering softwares, a warranty might be a good protection if any components overheat

also, it's good to think about the average life span of this laptop, if there's likely to be any milestones e.g. graduation from uni, that calls for another purchase of a laptop/ tablet subsequently and if it falls within this 2-3 year period
