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 
the string:
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.
