Computer company's warranty does NOT cover alien invasions

If you're worried an alien invasion could inadvertently fry your PC's motherboard, I would not recommend picking up an Acer at your local Best Buy.

There is a very interesting tidbit buried deep in Acer's warranty stipulations: Space invasions are not covered.

Sorry, resistance fighters. If you laptop is clipped by a stray laser blast during humanity's last stand, you're on your own.

Under the warranty extension program chapter, it's noted the plan does not cover "damage caused by natural disaster, intentional or unintentional misuse, acts of war, space invasions, abuse, neglect, improper maintenance, or use under abnormal conditions."

So, galactic conquest falls somewhere between misuse and neglect. Good to know.

When you think about it, it kind of makes sense: Now we know why Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum packed a Mac to deliver that MacGuffin computer virus to the mothership.
