The noise is really not that bad at all. When the fans are cranking you can hear them, but not to the point it would annoy most. It's no stealthy Thinkpad, but it's for sure not as loud as most people's desktops with a 2.8GHZ processor and everything that comes in these. Almost everyone is pleased with the noise level to performance ratio.
Yes, we do international sales and international credit card processing. We're still wet behind the ears with a lot of countries though. I don't believe there's a service center where you are so warranty would be more work, but I'll check for sure tomorrow. The UXGA compared to the Dell Ultra sharp, I get mixed reviews on it. Some say they prefer Dell's, some say they prefer Sager, but most say they can't really see any difference to tell you the truth.
