Years ago i was tasked with sorting out a hp computer for a friend so i used the live chat in windows help. Alas i was not an american - no help. Years later the phone line support (charged) gave me the wrong phone number when the windows key became invalid.
Since i dont need or want a windows license, and can buy linux computers without the microsoft tax why would i want to buy hp internationally ?
That old hp computer is still working but now has linux on it, hp wont be supplying the replacement.
