Don't be so sure ... not sure on laptops, but if you buy say a branded graphics card and the shop you bought it from goes under and owes that supplier money. If you take it to them to repair, they may reposess it and tell you to go to claim it from them. Sad but true ... happened to many customer of PC Gameworld in Sandton.If you get a branded laptop with or without an extended warranty, it should be fine.
I'm sure Pavilions are import models? Or maybe they are from Tarsus who I haven't registered with. Been told they have k@k service + they want R1000 from me to register and will close my account if I don't buy regularly.The HP Pavilion dv6-1130EI.
They told me the 1125EI is an Incredible Connection exclusive.
I can't answer that ... because I may be wrong. I know from my one supplier I can't get the Pavilion models, but its not impossible that Tarsus does it. If it is an import, then yes ... especially from a new company, because if for some reason they go down, then your warranty will definitely go with them. If it is a local model, then all should be peachy.So you would advise against that?
If its an import. The warranty doesn't vest with the local venders. So the shop you bought it from will carry the warranty, and if something goes fugly, they have to either sort it out or send it overseas to get sorted out. This isn't so bad when you buy from a larger established store because they will gladly sort your warranty out. But for a new shop, its risky, because if they close down ... then to get your warranty you would need to send it overseas yourself.What'll happen to the warranty if it's an import? Who do I speak to to find out about that?
