Computers don't smoke

Downtime was shocked to read that a consumer in the US was told his computer warranty was void because it had been used in the company of smokers. When his computer overheated he was told by the suppliers support team that the fan was broken because people had been smoking near it. The support also refused to work on the machine, due to “health risks of second hand smoke”. And they say an Apple a day keeps the doctor away.

I am glad that this information was published at this time since I was going to purchase a desk top apple product.

While I do not smoke I can not trust Apple to honor their warranty.

Apparently there are some strange substances classed as hazardous

The warrant was void because of "health risks of second hand smoke"? What the hell?! Is this part of warranty agreement or the technician just found a lame excuse not to work?

Yes there is no evidence to suggest that third had smoke causes cancer
