laptops bought abroad and local warrantee
« on: December 26, 2013, 06:12:28 PM »
I'm considering getting a Lenovo Y510p from the US because it's cheaper there and I thought it wasn't available here. But I just found out that Villman has them but at 20k more than if I purchase it abroad.

Are laptops bought abroad still under warrantee or the warrantee is region specific?

It should be covered under Int'l warranty but ask Lenovo US to be sure.


Edit: read something interesting, the International warranty will apply if same model is sold in the country you're using it in.  So it should be ok for you if Villman is selling the same model.

If I recall correctly, only Apple and Lenovo offer international warranty for their products.
