I do not have that -particular- one, but I bought one of the similar
family a while back:
(sorry about the long link, I used google and groups with a search on
dabs PC esys candt
The PC is still currently being used, now with upgraded HDs and RAM.
The keyboard keys wear off rapidly, and the speakers were very trash
and were soon actually thrown away. I would not hold any breath for
much warranty action. I did make contact just after I bought it but
before long the phone number was not answered,. I did not need any
serious warranty remedy, but the experience was interesting.
I needed a quick cheap PC at the time and it was good value (165 uk
pounds incl vat and dabs delivery). The bios needed configuring
various things - on board video display resolution I think, and the
delivered linux install was not useful, not that that mattered.
Documentation was nil and I used partly guesswork.
