Another vote for cash crusaders.
They are very overprices, and at least 3 or 4 generations behind, and often selling at same prices as current gen, so no I will never vote for cash crusaders, carbonite on the other offer better value and newer laptops.There is also a demo reseller on the forum who I would much rather support.

Well, actually, I just bought a new one.. I got the MSI gaming version GL73 i5 8 core edition. I upgraded the RAM and SSD and it performs quite well for the price mark, admittedly the upgrades did push it up a bit but got it with an additional 2 years collect and return warranty. Though, I am sure I will be having a new laptop before this expires.

Yes, but not really urgent. If black friday has a good deal may get it. otherwise just add SSD to current laptop and ride the wave a bit more until something good comes along

I recently brought a 3 month old "2nd hand ASUS FX504GD-DM364T gaming laptop with 16GB RAM, 128GB SSD and Geforce 1050 graphics card, and quite happy with it. Don't need another one for now.
