My first portable, a Columbia, weighed 32 pounds but that was, as I recall, 1983. Then I went to Toshiba laptops and an IBM. I needed them at work. No extended warranties on anything.
But, when I was buying stuff I was pestered endlessly by young men to buy their extended warranty. The record was getting asked five times in one visit.
I always wondered who bought extended warranties. I never did and never needed one. I got an IBM hard drive, an Intel motherboard, and an Intel processor replaced under normal warranty.
