M1530 shipped today, wish it hadn't...

​Too late to cancel now, but I wish I could after hearing all this garbage about faulty gpu's. I could have purchased an HP DV5T with new Montevina platform, 64-bit Vista, and 9600M GT gpu for practically the same price. ​

​ ​

​Question: I am moving to South Korea for a year come October. Will I still get at home service in Seoul or will I have to send my laptop back to the States when the gpu dies?​

​ ​

​Is it legal for Dell to sell computers that they know are faulty? ​

You can refuse delivery.  The standard warranty does not cover international service -- you must upgrade the warranty for that.

Before you settle on a new Montevina system, carefully evaluate availability - though they've been announced by many, availability is not generally set until late August.

I looked at HP laptops prior to buying an XPS. HP has no at home service, only mail in with about 3 days at their repair facility plus time to ship both ways. That was not an option for me. I did that with a Toshiba and a HP laptop, each took 2 weeks to get back.
