Appendix C. IBM Statement of Limited Warranty Z125-4753-08
Part 1 - General Terms
This Statement of Limited Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms, Part 2 -
Country-unique Terms, and Part 3 - Warranty Information. 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. 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.
Nothing in this Statement of Limited Warranty affects any statutory rights of
consumers that cannot be waived or limited by contract.
What this Warranty Covers
IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and workmanship and
2) conforms to IBM's Official Published Specifications ("Specifications") which are
available on request. The warranty period for the Machine starts on the original Date of
Installation and is specified in Part 3 - Warranty Information. The date on your invoice or
sales receipt is the Date of Installation unless IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise.
Many features, conversions, or upgrades involve the removal of parts and their return to
IBM. A part that replaces a removed part will assume the warranty service status of the
removed part. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, these warranties apply only in the country
or region in which you purchased the Machine.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. SOME STATES OR
JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO
YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION
TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT
PERIOD. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW
LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE
ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of identification labels on the
Machine or its parts.
