Your Chromebook comes with accidental loss and damage protection associated with the Acer Device Care Programme.

Acer care is a safeguard for your Chromebook against accidental loss and damage. It includes priority customer support, multiple complete repair services, and replacement of your device where necessary. Acer also has provided a warranty with your device to repair or replace the device you have purchased if it has manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship when dispatched from their warehouse.
