Hewlett-Packard Company Complaint - Planned Obsolescence - HP "Total Care" - not!
I purchased this computer at Best Buy on 11/22/07. About 6 months later the hard drive died and I paid for a new one. Then, on 11/27/08, the motherboard died. Naturally, the one year warranty had expired a few days earlier. I contacted HP to let them know about the problems I had encountered with this computer.
They wrote back: "Unfortunately you had issue with the motherboard after the warranty expired. Well, I would like to inform you that this is not the manufacturing defects, because HP provide for every product standard one year factory warranty. If it is manufacturing defect of motherboard it will appear when you purchase of this notebook with in one month."
I've been told that motherboards can die at any time. For the "total care" support to say it would have happened within one month of purchase was an exercise in creative customer service writing aka bull. This notebook was a big waste of money.
