Re: Laptop Failures “right out of the box”.
Many years ago (early 60''s), when I was studying Electronic Communication, our instructor was asked “what Television Set he would recommend”.
He answered “the one you like - that very one”. He meant to say, do not accept one just like the one you viewed, but still in the box - demand the “demonstrator” model, that you compared to others. The reasoning is obvious, and might well apply to “Laptops” (etc.) today.
