Yep, at least. HP only repairs my laptop in the UK and I'm only in the UK until early January. Odds of me getting the laptop beck before I get on a plane? Small to none I'd have thought, so I'm going to have to wait until family and friends come over later in the month to get it back. Hardware failure sucks.
I may just break and buy a new one in early January anyway. My current machine is a little on the under-specced side for my current needs.
Apologies for derailing the thread. As soon as I have some form of machine I can work on, I'll have a shot at some basic iso symbols.
