Buying a new laptop: Where

by mikeworld2 / October 11, 2012 6:03 AM PDT

I'm planning to buy Lenovo Thinkpad: X 230 (convertible) OR T430 OR X230 laptop.

I'm based in Toronto, would like to know, which is the best place to buy?

Lenovo.ca OR any other retail store OR online place?

I can wait 1-2 weeks for the delivery.

Typically like most vendors
by orlbuckeye / October 12, 2012 12:10 AM PDT

when you buy online the laptops are configurable and if you buy at Best Best, Newegg or retail outlets they are non-configurable.

Buy configurable i mean you can add more memory or bigger hard drive and with this model you can get a better type of screen.

If you buy from say Best and want a bigger hard drive it would be handled like a separate deal and you would pay labor and the part and might have warranty issue. If you get it configured at Lenova you just pay for that option and there wouldn't warranty issues aren't as bad.

I'd never open the door to FutureShop but would stick with ready to use models from newegg.ca, amazon.ca and other maker/vendors in Canada.

That's where I shopped when I was in Richmond, BC.
