I plan to purchase a new Lenovo laptop that comes preinstalled with Windows 8 (the exact product statement is
Windows 8 64). As far as I understand, that's an OEM version.
The problem is that I need to use this laptop not only within the US and I might need to reinstall the OS from scratch in other country. I found out that Windows 8 (without Pro) comes in three flavors:
- Core Country
- Core Single Language
As I understand, the latter two are limited with their activation ability as well as LP MUI installation. Lenovo states that their laptops may be regionally locked.
Regional Activation: Use of this product is restricted to a specific region. You may not be able to activate this product outside of such region.
Neither sales nor technical representative was able to tell me which version comes with T430.
How can I find which version is bundled?
P.S. I have the same question regarding 2012-fall Dell computers as well, but didn't try their support yet.
UPD: Dell sales representative failed to fulfill my request at the current moment as well as Lenovo's one. UPD2: Dell support was unable to tell me which Windows 8 the New Inspiron 23 Touch will be running as well.
The source of my assumption is the following table:
