    Oh, micro anvika made it quite clear to me when I bought a laptop that even installing windows XP pro (over XP home) would invalidate my warranty. That was some years ago now.

    Hi guys,

    This story has been updated to reflect recent developments in this story.

    It seems they have trouble all staying on the same page at PCW.

    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Re: Linux broke my laptop hinge

    Seems pretty clear that the laptop was not of satisfactory quality when sold, within the meaning of the Sale and Supply of Goods Act. That's a breach of an implied term of the contract for sale of the machine. Tikka should probably not waste any more time over trying to get them to fix the laptop; they've had every opportunity to be reasonable about that. Instead, Tikka should probably be demanding refund or replacement, and going the Small Claims route if PCW refuse.
