UK notebook specialist Rock has extended its warranty period to three years and broaden the guarantee's reach across the European Union. Current owners of Rock hardware need not feel left out: anyone who bought a machine on or after 1 February 2006 can also take advantage of the extended cover.
Rock said the warranty applies to people buying from any of the EU countries plus Norway and Switzerland, both at home and while they're travelling within the region. The warranty covers parts and labour, plus collection and return delivery, the company added.
Rock, which sells direct from its rockdirect.com website, said the three-year cover was backed by insurance to ensure the warranty continues to be honoured no matter what happens to the company itself.
