If you read the other posts, they covered all that. These whitebooks are already covered with manufacturer warranties. All the same. The reseller/distributors (they are not manufacturers) usually dont cover anything, if they do, its only a temperary period. Example: if you buy a hard drive from Best Buy they only cover it 30 days for returns, the Hard Drive is covered with its manufacturer warranty (anywhere from 1yr to 3yrs). So if another place is selling the exact same hard drive for cheaper, where would you buy it? I'm an IT administrator and I purchase a hell of a lot of hardware, trust me, price is always the factor here. Of course the specs and reviews would help too, but the original poster of this thread has already decided to get a Z70v, I'm sure he has already done his research, he's just asking for a nice place to get it. I doubt he would ever have to return it for a hefty "restocking" fee.
