Question Anyone knows how to buy NB from US sites like Dell and etc.?

Locally brands like Dell don't carry certain NB.
I just wonder how to buy from sites like Dell US?
Will warranty be a issue?

Anyone can share?

warranty damn hassle. Especially if the model is not intended for sale in SG.


Need to ship back and all that. Just make sure you get international warranty at purchase or they can refuse to provide you the warranty when daiji happen

My friend was refused local warranty when bought overseas. You need to send back to Dell US Service Center if anything happens. Singpost shipping would cost over $150.

However, my friend's dell is still working fine after 3 months.

it's a very huge risk to take especially if the unit is a PPE (primary production environment), you would have to find a crappier replacement during that time + extra shipping and all that.


There are various reasons why companies limit their products by geographical region. Some are just plain bestard, but there are also legitimate reasons behind it too.

Demand and pricing.
SG market is very small, not only Dell but others only bring in certain
amount of products but not full range.

AMD OEM products for example are definitely not sold here in SG.
