    Okay! This is the first time when I'm thinking of importing something so I need some help. I want to make a purchase from newegg/bestbuy and then I want the product to be shipped outside US.

    So I need to look for a local forwarding service which has address in US? Or I need to look for US based forwarding service while will ship the product to me? In either case, please let me know the service which you can recommend.

    It depends on which line of HP notebooks, the Elitebook line for example all have 3 years of international warranty.

    No. Unfortunately my dv6t Quad has 1 yr limited international warranty.

    I want to extend that for another 3 yrs with a 'HP Care pack'.
    So I contacted HP Holland, they told me they cant help me because its an imported product.
    They told me I should contact HP USA... but I dont think my phone bill can handle being put on hold etc.

    So I looked (modestly) online but couldnt find a US store thats ships the Care pack abroad.. I also tried the US HP store, but it stated:

    Plan requirements
    * Available only in the United States


    I am still wondering how I will extend my warranty.
    I mean, cmon.. it shouldnt be thàt hard..

    It is simple. You can't. The warranty upgrades offered to the HP US consumer units are limited to the U.S only. The business line enjoys international upgrades though.
    You could possibly, attempt to locate a local version of Squaretrade.

    If you really want to give it a shot, download Skype. Calling HP support should be free as it's a 800 no.

    Hey thanks for the reply, Ive looked into the Squaretrade business.
    Found out that its also limited to the other continent..

    So thats not a possibility. Im gonna try the Skype solution you suggested.

    I kinda want to take a leap of faith and order the US Care Pack,
    send it to a friend in the states and let him ship it to me.

    That way I always can call HP Holland and tell them I bought the official extended warranty and that its their responsibility that they should help me.
