Not sure where you are going to buy from.....


However, in a sealed box with the HP logo on.


On first power up it should need to install the operating system and you as a user and administrator.

If there is a serial number on the outside of the box then maybe enter it here..

and view any result. The warranty would start at the date it left the factory.

When it is registered with HP that date would change to the date of purchase.
