Back in 2006 we purchased a laptop for my father who needed a laptop that in the event it ever required service it was to have an international warranty because he lives outside the U.S. At that time there was only one OEM who gave an international warranty included with their required 1 yr parts & labor warranty and I believe that was Fujitsu only.
Fast forward to 2014 and im curious if any other OEM's are now offering international warrantys as part of their base 1 yr warranty, and, if not, whether any OEM's provide the "extra" warranty one could purchase which would include international warranty.
And also any information about OEM's and their warranties in general is greatly appreciated, such as:
-Acer: do they have a 1-800 number yet? any support phone numbers for that matter? I remember back in 2006 they did not....
-IBM/Lenovo for example offers a professional courtesy repair after an extended warranty expires0
-Macintosh/Apple do they offer an international warranty?
...this type of information is very helpful in choosing the right OEM warranty and subsequently the right OEM for my fathers imminent laptop purchase
What if any were your experiences with international warranties and other information of that type would be greatly appreciated.
