Warranty on an open box Dell laptop from Best Buy
Anyways, the laptop is under warranty for a year and it wasn't activated by whatever previous owner. Dell sends you the shipping box and everything and I have no problem waiting for them to fix it. Best case they send me a brand new laptop. Should I expect any problems doing warranty through Dell with it being open box? The only part worrying me it that some of the screws on the bottom are stripped a bit so someone previously took the bottom plate off. Dell's warranty seems to exclude deliberate damage but that doesn't seem like the case here I hope.
My other alternative is a return but then I lose out on a $300 discount. Should I try going through warranty?
