Insurance for your equipment/writer

I'm looking for new insurance for my writer/laptop.  I saw the NCRA had sent some information. Does anyone have any recommendations for good and reasonably-priced equipment insurance?  

Thank you.

Windows 10 and Windows 7

I just bought a new laptop with Windows 10 - and too late I'm wondering - can Eclipse files written on the laptop be brought into my desktop with Windows 7???? 

Thank you!

how do I import an RTF file into Eclipse from Case Catalyst?

I'm trying to have a friend proof for me.  The problem is I am on Case Cat and she is on Eclipse.  I converted the file to an RTF file and my friend hasn't been able to import the job into Eclipse. We are told this should be easy, but when she imports and opens the file it's blank??? 

Does anyone know the steps to importing a file into Eclipse that was created from another software?

Unusual court reporting work

 I am being offered a job, as a court reporter, taking down multiple interviews with individuals concerning Australia and trading in Asia. It is teleconferenced, paid for by the proposing company. Any input as to how much a court reporter would charge or how you would charge, is a better way to put it, for a job like this? It is estimated to be between 35 to 50 hours of interview.  I would appreciate any input.
