Situation, 6 weeks ago, treated myself to a Laptop, Emachine 700 quid, they did offer at the time, accident insurance, I decided (probably wrong with hindsight)not to take the additional 55 quid insurance and stuck with year guarantee. They were trying to push on me Anti Virus bits and lots of other bits and pieces, which I thought were just taking the p1ss.
Last night the crystals behind the screen went, the whole screen is smashed internally, but the outer screen is smooth as a babys bum. I took it back to Dixons where I bought it, they reckon it will cost 100 quid for a quote and 500 quid to get repaired as it is not covered by my years guarantee and i should have taken out the extra cover.
Simple maths, means i would have to put out nearly the same amount again to get it repaired, is there anything I can do?
Do I have any legal rights or have i just got to w/off 700 quid? Is it worth talking to trading standards or anyone due to it only being bought in July?
Dixons state that it is not covered.
