Policies FAQs

These questions all relate to general PCs for People policies regarding refunds, returns, and warranties.

Do the computers come with a warranty?

The computer you receive comes with a 90-day hardware warranty. If something happens to it within those 90 days bring it back and we will repair it for free, unless it is something user-caused (virus, spilling water on it, dropping it, etc.). After the 90 days, or if the problem is user-caused, repair costs start at $25, although the first reinstall of Windows is free. If you have opened your computer, altered your operating system, or had someone else attempt to repair it, your warranty is void.

Laptop batteries are warrantied for 7 business days.

Upward exchanges are permitted during the 90-day warranty period if the computer is in working condition and free of significant cosmetic damage. PCs for People staff reserves the right to decline an upward exchange based on the condition of the computer.

Are laptop batteries covered under the warranty?

Yes, but only within 7 business days of the purchase date of the laptop.

Can I exchange my computer for a different one?

Upward exchanges are permitted during the 90-day warranty period if the computer is in working condition and free of significant cosmetic damage. PCs for People staff reserves the right to decline an upward exchange based on the condition of the computer. Exchanges between two equal-value computers are not permitted unless the computer is unrepairable and needs to be replaced under its warranty.
