When I went to apple store yesterday about a display problem in macbook air. He told me that you shouldn't let the charger be connected after your macbook has been charged to 100%. Basically, he said that I should wake up at 2 O'Clock in the morning and disconnect the charger. F**********K YOU

Under US Law warranty void sticker is actually against the law to refuse warranty because, under US the only way they can refuse warranty or replacement is if you or a third party, replace anything and THAT REPLACEMENT OR REPAIR WAS THE REASON FOR THE PRODUCT TO STOP WORKING. However big companies will keep doing this until they are sued or given a class act lawsuit (sued by many people at one altogether) to ban these void if open or taken off stickers. :(

Asus is no different actually...the power supply IC on my Asus A555L had crapped out, and Asus gave me a total repair cost of 45k... I had bought the damned thing for 43k... Eventually I asked them to keep their warranty to themselves, went to a a 3rd party laptop repair shop...the guy repaired it for 3k :P So it's not just apple who fucks people over Note: All costs I mentioned are in Indian rupees

Same happened with me in Germany, I have an IPhone 7 Plus, after updating the software to IOS11 the mic and loudspeaker dosnyt work anymore. I have been to repair shop they don’t want to fix even the warranty is still there. They are telling me that the iPhone has been dropped from though it is a software bug. Hate apple, wont buy any item again.

They don't offer repairs or sell parts because they dont want you or anyone fixing their products. They want you to buy a new one. This is widely known, from apple and their charger charade. To them slowing down older phones to force you to buy their $1000 one's. Which is why I've never bought anything apple except for an I pod. If you dislike how Apple operates , simply don't buy their products.

Its worse with cars, I get paid half of the industry standard labor hours for a given repair under warranty. Also franchise agreements limit the actual per hour labor price when dealing with warranty repairs. This is illegal in my state but if you fight it, you lose your franchise. Also if you are an independent repairer you can pay upwards of $4000 per month to use the factory diagnostic software and access to factory manuals.

I had some severe water damage done to my iPhone X. I knew I wouldn't get a free replacement. So I outsmarted them. I found the water indicator located in the SIM port and took a toothbrush and bleach to it, I didn't even have to take the phone apart. Btw you can clearly see water under my screen. That didn't matter cause all they were looking for was a tiny red indicator in the SIM port. Needless to say I walked out with a brand new iPhone X covered under manufacture warranty.

Apple is bulshit. Same working parts as in all highend PCs but absolutely no freedom of Costumisation plus so much hostility with all the apple policys. Just get a PC, if you dont know anything about PC´s find someone who doese tell them what you need a PC for and they will recommend you the optimal setup for your available fund pool. PC Master Race didnt just pop up becouse people like PC´s over other solutions.

You forgot one of the main elements that make up any CrApple product. It's called "Upyourtanium" and that is why CrApple says their $3000 laptops are unrepairable so they just tell you to buy a new one as the "Upyourtanium" makes repairs impossible.

CrApple fanbois are such fucktards. Like Louis said, if any other company made such shit products, these same fanbois would be screaming at the top of their lungs at anyone who would listen about how shit the product is and how they are never going to buy from that company again. Yet they allow CrApple to get away with that same bullshit. How the fuck does a screen replacement cost more than the price of a new machine? That is fucking stupid.

Molybdenum  Yes, it does, that warranty is included for some ASUS models during the first year following a new purchase of a brand-new unit. At their option, under that accidental damage warranty, they can either repair it or replace it, and, at their option, they can repair it or replace it with used parts and/or a used replacement unit. So I'm not sure why you believe their warranty is so fantastic.
