I know this topic is strange but I wanted you to know that your business is SORELY needed in this right-to-repair fiasco currently going on and wanted so very badly by so many for so long!
I’m on my 6th Alienware/Dell high-end laptop where every one was over $5,000. I’m not saying it to brag but to explain the reason you are needed. Dell has always had a minimum 4-year warranty available so buying high-end systems made sense on a per year cost. Yes, they use used parts but they always come to the house to repair and halfway through the warranty cycle when the laptop would fail from thermals, I’d get a NEW upgraded maxed out laptop so essentially getting two brand-new laptops in 4 years because parts were no longer available on the old system.
Where your company changes the game for me is that I can repair it if it breaks WITHOUT the need for a long-term warranty. Since Dell was the only one that offered such a long warranty, I’m now free to purchase your laptop and repair it when a component fails with ease. I can also upgrade with ease (hopefully) and sell the used working parts back to you to resell to others cheaply that have failures and don’t want to upgrade. I KNOW this will work long-term and I’m due to buy another laptop in 2 years so I’m hoping you will be around for me to buy my next high-end laptop from you to support this wonderful idea. I just wanted you to know you have supporters that may not buy immediately from you but will as soon as we can and the need arises. Hang in there. You have NO IDEA how badly we want you to succeed and NEED you to succeed to change the gaming/computer landscape.
