      Apologies in advance for being a bit off-topic. This isn't about the
      XPi but it is about a Dell laptop.

      I have a nice Inspiron 9100 that was unfortunately used during a
      thunderstorm. I took it to the local tech and he said he's seen lots
      of these and the cost would be about $700 to $800 to fix. That seems
      way high for a motherboard replacement.

      Is that the going rate? Are Dells really that sensitive to power surges?
