It is not possible to void a warranty from Dell besides to actually break something.
he said that Dell made it a point to structure their warranty so that it would be the most user friendly toward people that wished to repair/upgrade their own machines. Dell does not care what OS you run on your machine and they don't care what parts you upgrade as long as you don't break or render any part inoperable. He did mention however that Dell most likely will decline to repair a unit that runs a different OS or utilizes different hardware outside of HDDs or memory upgrades.
I just thought I would share...
isnt that contadictory, they say you can load another OS and they dont care, but on the other hand they say if you do, they will refuse to repair it, so what to do?...do you load OSX or whatever and if it breaks reload XP or Win 7 just to get it fixed?, if you leave OSX or whatever on it and send it back they wont fix it?....isnt that a contridiction of their terms?, in other words go ahead and do what you want just dont come to us for ANY repairs....but isnt that the same for most companies, they dont care if you modify it they just reserve the right to not fix it if you do.
