Service Plan is a decision you have to make. Personally, I would not, although I have in the past (laptop) and it paid off as it crapped out shortly after the standard warranty expired (this was direct with Gateway years ago). You need to read the terms of the plan - I've read where they will look for just about anything to avoid paying off - read recently one didn't notify them about the problem soon enough - somewhere in TSG threads I believe or could have been PCWorld mag. I simply do not buy the extended warranty plans on anything - appliance, computer, cell, laptop, washer/dryer, etc. - but that's me, and not saying you shouldn't and you are very clear on it's terms and conditions of warranty, it may pay off, or not.If I go with this model, should I purchase the service plan ($90) or do you think that would be a waste of money?
And if I want to upgrade a part later, would that interfere/void a service plan?
