Do I Need a Surge Protector?

Lightning doesn't even have to hit your house for your computer to die of electrocution. "Electrical events" sufficient to do the can happen many at any time in the average home or office. If you do not protect your computer from such events, you're taking a risk as great as motorcycling without a helmet. The first and most frequently used line of defense is the surge protector. It won't protect you 100%, but a surge protector is cheap insurance and I recommend them for everyone.
