Hi folks

Need some advice about a laptop with a broken factory seal. We got a
toshiba laptop from bestbuy a few days ago. However a few days later we
found a better deal on the same laptop at CompUSA and bought the same
model toshiba. The latter laptop seems to have the toshiba factory seal
broken and then *cleverly* resealed. Now I am in a dilema about which
one to keep. The difference in price is 10%. Anyone has the inside
scoop on this ?

In one scenario I can think of, the CompUSA laptop is a returned item -
maybe due to too many dead LCD pixels. The store decided to simply
reseal and resell. Here's some pictures :

   Probably a fatwallet.com/forums/ -> hot deals reader that found a
better deal locally during the holidays and returned?
