Smoking Can Seriously Void Your Apple Warranty – Smokist! (excuse for Dita von Teese Pic)
Reports on US consumer issues site, The Consumerist, claim Apple voided a Macbook warranty because it was â€œcontaminatedâ€ by cigarette smoke.
In both cases, itâ€™s claimed that Apple first agreed to repair the Macbook before informing the owner that work was impossible because smoke residue had contaminated the system.
One woman, complaining about Appleâ€™s refusal to repair her iMac, said: â€œMy Applecare warranty says nothing about not honouring warranties if the owner is a smoker.â€
Appleâ€™s terms and conditions indicate that Applecare doesnâ€™t cover â€œdamage caused by extreme environmentâ€ – apparently that means a few Luckies smoked near-by.
Have you been turned down by Apple because of cigarette smoke?
Let me know.
I could’ve posted a pic of a smoke-damaged puter but hey – it’s Monday, Dita is lovely and she’s holding a cigarette!
