Question

Question about global warranty

I plan to purchase this laptop and take this with me to India. I wanted to know if this product is covered under global warranty. i.e. Will the initial manufacturer warranty on this laptop also allow it to be serviced in any dell service center in India? If yes, where can I get a list of dell service centers in India where this laptop could be serviced? Thanks!

I do not believe that Dell extends their warranty globally. I know that Best Buy has an international protection plan that you can purchase on your computer though.

Hello,

Short answer is yes, a Dell warranty will transfer internationally.

Here is Dell's Warranty and Policy page:

http://dell.to/qDv6c1

The Basic 1-Year Limited Warranty (this one) does not qualify for international service. You will need to upgrade your warranty to Next Business Day On-Site Response Service to qualify for international service.

http://dell.to/uBomOm
The hardware warranty will carry over to a new country; however it is limited to parts availability in the region in which you are moving it to. Complete Care does not carry over.
Second, a good idea would be to take a look at the Dell website for the region you are in and compare it to the system you are interested in here. You will want to compare the tech specs. You will be looking for hardware features that are different and do not have an option to upgrade.

Finally, you will want to complete an International Ownership Transfer Form anytime the system is moved to a new region (if you are staying longer than 6 months).

http://dell.to/rgAQlz

I do not have a list of Dell service centers in India, but laptops would be serviced on-site, due to your upgraded warranty.

Hope this helps!

Hello,

Yes, this laptop comes with an integrated .3 MP webcamera and microphone. It also has a Audio-In headphone style jack that allows you to plug in an external microphone if you wish. With it's 2nd Gen Intel Core i3 processor and HD 3000 video controller, it can handle most games just fine. Since games always love more processing power, naturally this system cannot play the latest games at full graphics settings, which is why such gaming machines like Alienware exist. I would check the minimum and recommended system requirements for the game(s) you want to play and see if this system meets your needs. Also, check out the forums of the game developers to see what people who actually play the game think about a system like this laptop.

Hope this helps!

Hello,

I am a Dell representative and I love to speak about the features of our products but unfortunately I do not control pricing and availability here on Best Buy. Maybe a Best Buy representative will chime in on this question and provide some insight on your question. I would keep checking back to see if the system comes back on sale or call Best Buy at 1-888-237-8289.

Hope this helps!

Hello,

The AC Adapter (Power block and cord) for this Inspiron 15 is designed for worldwide usage. It can automatically switch between 110-240 Volts so I can handle international power. The cable itself actually consists of 2 parts, the part that contains the power block and connects to the laptop and the detachable cable that plugs into the wall outlet. This wall outlet cable can be replaced with one that will work with the specific pinout of your country. You can purchase a generic cable to fit your needs or contact Dell Spare Parts to get the cable for your specific needs:

Hello,

If you purchased a retail copy of Microsoft Windows, you can install it on any PC that meets it's system requirements. That said, Microsoft has license restrictions on Office software that depending on what version you own, can restrict concurrent installs from 1 to 3 people. Here is a snippet from Microsoft's Office FAQ:

The number of installations will vary depending on the Office suite purchased. The disc version of Office Home and Student 2010 allows a user to install one copy of the software on up to three PCs in a single household for non-commercial use. (Office Home and Student 2010 cannot be used for any commercial, non-profit or revenue generating activity or by any governmental organization.) The disc version of Office Home and Business 2010 and Office Professional 2010 allows one user to install one copy on one PC and a second copy on his/her portable device such as a laptop.

You might wanna check with Microsoft and see what the rules are for your specific Office version.

Hope this helps!
