I assume you have the next business day warranty in writing? (Some
piece of paper stating that you have one) - and you paid them by credit
card / cheque / some sort of traceable financial transaction.
If it's causing issue, have a quick chat with a solicitor (preferably a
friend / acquaintance who won't charge the earth for services) and get
them to write Dell a letter, including the charge for his/her legal
I think you'll find that the response will be fairly rapid and in your
(If you're interested, the law is very clearly in your favour. A little

that a supplier MUST provide (or must make all reasonable endevour to
provide) that which he/she stated would be provided.)
