Warranty and Return Policy
A Brand of Seriously Smart Technologies
We care about your business - Every notebook we sell is designed to meet and even exceed your expectations. We are dedicated to providing excellent products that use today’s advanced technology. However, as most people realize, electronic products sometimes do have technical difficulties. There are many reasons that these technical problems arise, sometimes it is due to a manufacturing defect. That is why we offer a standard one full year warranty against manufacturer defects on every notebook and desktop computer we sell. We also offer additional warranty terms on most of our products at an additional cost. Keep in mind that there are also many additional factors that are beyond our control and are not covered under any warranty agreement. We highly recommend that you read this warranty policy so that you understand what things may or may not be covered under the warranty for your computer. If you have any questions regarding this warranty, please feel free to contact us during normal business hours.
