Since your laptop is broken and you really want to buy another laptop, I recommend you simply buy whatever laptop you want and finance it with your credit card. It may end up costing you less in the long run especially if you pay more than the minimum monthly payment.

You can use the following site to help you calculate how many payments you will need to make to pay off your credit card balance depending on the cost of the laptop, the interest rate and the monthly payments you want to make.

http://www.bankrate.com/calculators/credit-cards/credit-card-payoff-calculator.aspx


Let's assume you are purchasing a $1,000 laptop and the interest rate on the credit card is 20%. The total cost is an estimate.

1. $25 monthly payments = 65 payments = $1,625
2. $50 monthly payments = 25 payments = $1,250
3. $75 monthly payments = 16 payments = $1,200
4. $100 monthly payments = 11 payments = $1,100

I meant to comment on that earlier.
That is almost certainly just a teeny drive to be used as a cache for the HDD.
Mostly useless, but a good marketing point.

It depends about the sales price Best Buy offers the same price whether you finance or pay cash. The OEM are basically the same. They work on the premise you will buy again if you get the same no interest.
