Hi everyone! My Dell laptop (Dell 8600) died last week after splitting in two on the way down the stairs. Luckily I was able to extract all my data since the hard drive is easily removed. It was a fantastic machine and I loved it to bits. Anyway... I'm going through the motions with the Insurance company. Its been specifically listed with a value of £2500 on my home insurance policy since I bought it and I've been paying extra as such for it to be insured. My insurers pass laptop claims onto another company who have had a look at it and say its beyond economical repair and they are contacting Dell for a quote for a replacement. To be honest, now that I've got used to using this iBook G4 that I was going to sell, I'd rather not get another PC and sell whatever I get back from them to go towards other things. I've already said I won't settle for anything that doesn't have a WUXGA screen so hopefully I should get a half decent laptop. Whatever I get though I doubt it'll be worth more than £1000. While the new for old insurance may be ok, I'm a bit peeved that I've been paying to have it insured for £2500 but I'm not going to be getting that value back if you see what I mean. Should I call my insurers and quibble about this? It was originally listed on my insurance policy because when new I paid over £2500 for it and my insurance only covered up to £2000 on non listed items. Back in March of this year my insurance policy changed to cover everything up to £2500 although my laptop remained listed on the insurance and I carried on paying the higher rate for it. I've never made a claim on home insurance before. So yeah, is quibbling ok? I want to get the most back that I can for this obviously. Makes me wish I bought a PowerBook back then, I'd probably get a new MacBook Pro if I'd done that!!
