IBM Statement of Limited Warranty
Part 1 - General Terms
This Statement of Limited Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms and Part 2 -
Country-unique Terms. The terms of Part 2 replace or modify those of Part 1. The warranties
provided by IBM in this Statement of Limited Warranty apply only to Machines you purchase
for your use, and not for resale, from IBM or your reseller. The term "Machine" means an IBM
machine, its features, conversions, upgrades, elements, or accessories, or any combination of
them. The term "Machine" does not include any software programs, whether pre-loaded with the
Machine, installed subsequently or otherwise. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, the following
warranties apply only in the country where you acquire the Machine. Nothing in this Statement
of Limited Warranty affects any statutory rights of consumers that cannot be waived or limited
by contract. If you have any questions, contact IBM or your reseller.
The IBM Warranty for Machines: IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in
materials and workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM's Official Published Specifications
("Specifications"). The warranty period for a Machine is a specified, fixed period commencing
on its Date of Installation. The date on your sales receipt is the Date of Installation unless IBM
or your reseller informs you otherwise.
If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, and IBM or your
reseller are unable to either 1) make it do so or 2) replace it with one that is at least functionally
equivalent, you may return it to your place of purchase and your money will be refunded.
Extent of Warranty: The warranty does not cover the repair or exchange of a Machine
resulting from misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment,
improper maintenance by you, or failure caused by a product for which IBM is not responsible.
The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of Machine or parts identification labels.
THESE WARRANTIES ARE YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES AND REPLACE
ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU
MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO
JURISDICTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH
WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO
WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD.
Items Not Covered by Warranty: IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation
of a Machine.
