HP is providing this PC with an additional year of coverage beyond the standard HP 1-year hardware
limited warranty. This additional year of warranty coverage is subject to the same terms and conditions of
the original 1-year hardware limited warranty that is included with your PC. This one-year extension is
valid only on computers purchased in the United States of America and Canada.
This computer includes the standard 1 year of limited software technical support.*
The notebook PC must be serviced in the United States of America or Canada. If outside the USA or
Canada, you may be required to pay for shipping this unit to the United States or Canada to receive this
service. This warranty applies to the notebook PC only.
How are you going to buy the computer is the question...
Your friend in America buy it and ship it to you? If that's the case you are fine.
well,am not going to have it shipped to me ! hes there for a business trip and would get it back for me when he returns in two weeks...none of the brands provide an international warranty,right? and the hp provides a glossy or matte screen?
O man.. then buying online is not possible, your friend would have to pay a small premium to buy it in a retail store. By doing that you are subjected to the store's warranty policy which varies from one retailer to the next.
Issue is buying online takes approx 3 week to a month, which is prone to unexpected delays. This method if executed perfectly can work, but the chance of everything going smoothly is pretty rare.
As the article stated above, it does cover your laptop, but you will have to ship it back to the states (you paying for shipping) when you want it fixed.
well,i was thinking of buying from a retailer,but i thought it wouldnt be of any difference and i can do either ! n uh oh,if i am not wrong,dell is glossy too ! so that rules out wide screen viewing though i dont relly need that ! lol,guess i cant ask evrything in just a $1000 budget ! and hey,real thanks to you for helping me choosing out...well,not really chosen :P but,thanks anyways still,got just a few doubts to clear before i tell my order to my friend
uh oh...you actually mean $300 more? that totally SUCKS and brings my dreams to an end pplus is it true that the retailers wouldnt have the laptop with the same specs as in the ones online? i mean,they do not provide those free upgrades to 8 gb RAM n would just have the normal 6 gb ones eh?
