    Are there any companies which offer insurance for dead pixels?

    I'm considering buying a fujitsu stylistic tablet pc and if i'm going
    to shell out over $2500 i'm not going to accept a policy where i am
    have to have four dead pixels, or a cluster of dead pixels, before
    they will replace it.

    so ... does anyone know of a company that will provide insurance if a
    pixel goes bad they will pay the replacement fee?

    Only four? Eight according to IBM... :( In Holland there's a webshop that
    offers 'pixelguarantee' (www.de-laptopper.nl). It costs 49 euro (probably
    about $60) to get this when you buy a new laptop. It gives you the right to
    exchange it for a laptop without any dead pixels within a two-day period.
    There should be more shops out there that offer this kind of guarantee.
