This EMEA Limited Warranty applies to Systems purchased in the following countries: Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Benin, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guinea, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Kuwait, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Madagascar, Mali, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Niger, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.

Chuwi Laptops are covered by Warranty in Malta only, provided by Tabone Computer Centre Limited.



All furniture is warranted from structural defects. Normal shrinkage, swelling, hairline cracks and minor warping of wide board furniture to a minor degree are to be expected and are not a structural defect and are therefore not covered. We try to match grain patterns. But due to a variety of different influences that affect individual trees, variations will occur and will be evident in your furniture to varying degrees. A variation in grain pattern is not considered defective and is not reason for return/store credit. We will repair/replace furniture found to be defective due to structural problems within one year of delivery. We will first inspect the furniture to determine whether problem is structural or damaged. There are no other warranties either expressed or implied.



The law (European directive 1999/44/EC) provides that products purchased by customers must be as described by Tabone Computer Centre Limited, fit for the purpose and have the qualities and performance which are normally found in products of the same type. If this is not the case, customers can ask for a free of charge remedy. The time-limit for the free remedy is two years from the date of purchase.

The two-year period starts from the day you received the product, so you should therefore always keep your sales receipts.  The legal guarantee is valid for a period of two years. But there are certain conditions:

The legal guarantee covers any defects presumed to have existed at the time of delivery and which become apparent within a period of two years. However, the crucial period is the first six months after you bought your product. If there are no latent/ hidden defects within the first six month period, the two year legal guarantee will not be triggered. During the first six months, if the product is defective, it will be considered as a latent defect, unless this presumption is incompatible with the nature of the goods or the nature of the lack of conformity This would trigger the two year legal warranty, unless we do not prove otherwise.  

The remedies provided in the legal guarantee are:

  • Repair
  • Replacement
  • Part or full refund


Customers would not be entitled for these remedies if the defect in the product is the result of some kind of misuse or handling in a different manner, other than as specified in the User Manual of the product.
