    Do you guys recommend getting extended warranty for
    the slate 500?
    I wonder how much it would cost?
    I discovered there is NO extended warranty for the slate!!
    Rick, how come?

    Because we're bleeding edge. We treat warranties as sell by dates! :D

    Stupid question (really - I honestly don't know) - Does HP have extended warranties?

    I've learnt one thing in life:There is no such thing as a stupid question...only stupid answers!

    Having given the stupid answer yesterday, here's a more useful one. Check out HP Care Pack Services at HP Care Pack Services. I don't know if one of their options will work for you (and the Slate) but it sounds like you should be able to find something.

    I do polite on odd numbered day. Even numbered you get snarky.

    Let us know if you find a warranty that makes sense (and isn't as overpriced as HP parts for the Slate).

    HP is offering extended warranty.
    Is it worth it?

    How much is it? With the number of defective screens that have popped up, if it does not cost too much, it might be worth it. I usually try to see how long I'll own a device before extending the warranty but with nothing really interesting on the horizon, I guess I'll still be using this slate next year. Prices seem steep for parts.
