Best place to buy laptop from?

222 29 April 8, 2018 at 12:03 PM
Hey Everyone,

I'm interested in buying a new laptop, particularly looking at one of the new 8th generation gaming laptops (Aero 15x). Currently on preorder and I can order it through a 3rd party seller like HIDevolution or go through Amazon. Has anyone had any experience buying laptops from Amazon? Are they pretty generous with the return policy? My biggest concern is getting a laptop that has a faulty keyboard/screen and having it fixed through a 3rd party seller vs just returning it in 30 days with Amazon with no hassle. The biggest problem is once those 30 days are up, what would I have to do for warranty issue?

If you buy it from amazon make sure that it is prime eligible for 30 day returns. You may have to pay return shipping. I think costco has a 90 day return policy.

Be sure to watch out for restocking fees. Many amazon sellers have a 15% restocking fee on laptops returned just because you don't like them.

Costco is best place to buy laptops. Fixing a third party is a pita
