Dell Online: Dell Premier Page

We recommend you purchase your Dell from Dell at https://www.dell.com/en-ca or at one of the links below through our partner, CDW.ca. If you choose to purchase your computer directly from Dell, please ensure you purchase Dell ProSupport warranty at time of purchase: this is a fantastic professional warranty for your computer, and if you can afford it, accidental damage coverage. Dell ProSupport is included in the CDW.ca options below. 

Microsoft Surface Book

Online: Microsoft Store Online

This option is best for students who want to buy their Surface Book 3 because they live outside the Greater Toronto Area. Be sure to purchase a warranty from Microsoft and include accidental damage if you can afford it.
