Production

Status

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each

Machine

is manufactured

from

new

parts,

or

new

and

 

used

parts.

In

 

some

cases,

the

Machine

may

not

 

be

new

and

may

have

been

previously

 

installed.

Regardless

of

the

Machine's

production

status,

 

IBM's

warranty terms

apply.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The

IBM

Warranty

 

for

 

Machines

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IBM warrants that each Machine

1)

 

is

free

from

defects

in

materials

 

 

and

 

 

workmanship

and

2)

conforms

 

to

IBM's

 

Official

Published

Specifications.

The

 

 

 

 

 

warranty

period for a Machine is a specified,

fixed

 

period

commencing

on

 

 

its

 

Date

of

Installation.

The

 

date

on

your

receipt

is

 

the

Date

of

 

Installation,

unless

IBM

or

 

your

reseller

informs you

otherwise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During

the

warranty

 

period

 

IBM

or

your

reseller,

if

 

authorized

by

IBM,

 

 

will

 

provide

 

warranty

service

under

the

type

of

service

 

designated

for

 

the

 

 

Machine

 

and

will

manage

and

 

install

engineering

 

changes

that

apply

to

the

 

Machine.

 

 

For

IBM

 

or

 

your

 

reseller

 

to

provide

 

warranty

service

for

a

feature,

 

conversion,

or

upgrade,

IBM

or

 

your

reseller

may

 

require

that

the

Machine

on

which

 

 

it

is

installed

be

 

1)

for

certain

Machines,

the

designated,

serial-numbered

 

Machine

 

 

 

and

2)

 

at

 

an

engineering-change

level

 

compatible

with

the

feature,

conversion,

 

 

or

upgrade.

Many

of

 

these

transactions

involve

the

removal

of

parts

and

their

 

return

to

IBM.

You

represent

that

 

all

removed

parts

 

are

genuine

and

 

unaltered.

 

A part
