I darned near always recommend some sort of an extended warranty on laptops. Even from the "major" brands. My AppleCare policy on my 17" MacBook Pro cost $250 back in 2006. But it "bought" me a repair that totalled about a grand: I sent it in for a noisier-than-it-should-be right-side fan, and Apple replaced both fans, a logic board, and a thermal sensor. I looked up the parts on ifixit.com, and was astonished to see how much it all cost.

No, I am not a "sucker" for extended warranties. But there are just a few product categories where they can be beneficial.
