For new devices, we recommend you purchase a complete care warranty that covers accidental breakage. If the computer is purchased outside of Egypt, verify with the seller that the warranty is international, will be honored in Egypt and that the company has the capability to fix the particular model in Egypt with a 1 or 2 business day turn around. While these warranties tend to be more expensive, they do provide peace of mind.
Location in Home
While not really a device specification, we recommend that the laptop or mobile device be kept and used in a public place in your home, such as a living room or family room, where hours and work can be more easily supervised.
Computer Contingency Fee
