Has anyone imported an Acer c7 using freight forwarding service?
You can get one for around 230NZD good buy if you wanted a cheap basic laptop as you can also install linux on it.

Is the warranty for an acer product global or country specific?

The Samsung is nice but the intel CPU swings me towards the acer. 
I bet you could import one for less than jbhifi aus pricing.

On higher-end acer laptops it "was" global IIRC, it's been aout 4 years since I last bought an acer (still running fine, my daughter uses it)
I'm not sure with chromebooks, lower priced acers.
I do know samsung mobile phone warranty is a local issue.
