    The current distribution model they have gives them (whoever 'them' is, I can't tell really) some advantage over companies like Individual Computers and others.
    Because AFAIK I don't really have any warranty or the extended warranty of two years for my Vampire, that re-sellers have to give in Germany over products like this.
    I don't think they have much work todo, yet, to repair defective boards or send replacements and the like.
    Once they do that the development will slow down a bit I think.

    And for the standalone or A1200, when the stuff gets more expensive, I think I won't buy if there is no warranty.

    You get a two years warranty in Germany?
    Nice, standard in the US is 90 days.




    Really? So you buy a brand new MacBook Pro for $3000 and you have 90 days of warranty?

    Decent manufacturers still offer a 1 year warranty (zip from resellers unless you pay for it).
    For instance, a laptop from HP comes with a one year warranty.

    Cheaper stuff, say a Sony Blu Ray player, yep, 90 days.

    Accessories like Vampire, varies with the manufacturer.



    That American freedom to be screwed over by corporations is really appealing! ;)
