Toshiba Computer Systems is putting its money where its mouth is with the launch of its Toshiba Promise Tecra A9 promotion – aimed at demonstrating the reliability of its premium range of business notebook computers.

“Toshiba is offering users the chance to claim back the purchase price of their notebooks if the machines develop a technical fault recognised under its standard manufacturer warranty within one year of the purchase date,” says Reon Coetzee, marketing manager for Toshiba South Africa and Africa.
The offer is valid on new notebooks purchased between 1 February 30 and April 2008 and is open to residents of South Africa who bought their notebooks in Sotuh Africa.
The promotion applies to Tecra A9-132, Tecra A9-12P, Tecra A9-12T and Tecra A9-14F models. All Toshiba Tecra A9 units come with a standard 3 year warranty.
“In order to participate in the programme, users must register their products within seven days of purchase via the ‘standard warranty’ link on,” Coetzee says.
“It is very important that users activate their registrations once they have finished registering and ensure they receive a confirmation e-mail.”
Users are able to lodge any claims before April 2009, subject to Toshiba’s approval and terms and conditions are available on the Toshiba Promise website.
“The Tecra A9 series is designed to the highest quality standards,” says Andre Roussouw, Regional General Manager for Africa region at Toshiba.
“Incorporating premium technologies such as Intel’s Core2 Duo-based  Centrino platform, up to 2GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, a double-layer DVD Super-Multi drive and a 15.4” WXGA TFT display, the Tecra A9 represents the smart choice for business users in South Africa,” he concludes.
