Do you think there is a difference between  a home  and a business
warranty.  As far as I can tell, the model number is different but the
hardware can be exactly the same, is it worth to have my son buy a Dell
laptop as business purchase, or buy it myself as a home purchase. Thanks


Dell warranties for business used to be next day onsite.  I think they're
offering depot drop-off for their business line as well now.

My Gold Tech Support warranty is "Same Day 4-Hour 5x10 Parts and Labor On-Site
which means 4 hour response time, 5 days per week, 10 hours per day. After
hours, it rolls
over to the next business day.

Ask Dell.

In the past, some of Dell's warranties, such as their "Gold Tech Support,"

Supposedly, these warranties are now available to Home Division purchasers,
but you've got to ask!
