    Do any of you in the UK that own a laptop have it insured, and how did you go about it?

    I'm a little worried about it getting stolen or broken!

    You should check with your household insurer.£3000 cover worldwide for a laptop and periphials works out about £150 a year.If you name it on household cover you may get a better deal.
    P.S. if its a newish Pb you may find an insurance policy is a better deal than Applecare some of them cover allsorts including breakdown.Just Google it there are lots out there.

    We appear to be from the same neck of the woods!

    A colleague tried to get hers covered on household insurance and they wouldn't touch it with a bargepole. I may have to look into you're suggestion.

    Thanks for the tip,

    My household insurers covered mine (East Dulwich) as a 'named item' on the policy, covering breakdown, accidental damage and 'out of the house' for £30 a year extra on the insurance.

    It's always worth speaking to them - your record of claims probably helps here. Mine's insured through the Woolwich - I claimed earlier this year when my handbag was stolen and I had 'new for old' iPod, mobile, watch plus cash within a week.

    That's pretty cheap...







    ...considering you're in Peckham.

    :p

    It's worse than that - I'm closer to the Forest Hill end than the Peckham side!

    Apparantly I live in Clapham North but it feels pretty much like Brixton to anyone that visits.

    Before that I lived in Primrose Hill (or was it Swiss Cottage...)

    I will post when problem is sorted
