The top resellers for NA are:
Most of them will have similar prices, some will be a bit higher cause they think they're cool. I would go to each site and look at their warranty, support, offers, and price. Then get like a top 5 chosen and ask about having no logo (most if not all will be able to arrange that) then depending on who you have chose start haggling the price/specs. You wont get them to knock off hundreds of dollars, but you can usually get a few bills back or get a free upgrade (not talking about gpu/cpu upgrades, but like ram and cheaper stuff).
Once you've found the lowest price/best specs you can take that to another resellers and some of them will price match, leaving you with the best deal+warranty+support.
Also you can save a few bucks by buying the system as a barebones laptop, or for less savings and it being easier, you can buy the system with everything assembled except the easy stuff like ram+HDD and that will save you some money (especially if you get them on sale, its like $50 saved).
Some resellers will straight up deny you price haggling, selling a system thats not complete, or selling it without the logo, but there's a decent number of resellers and there's atleast 5 that will do all that I've mentioned, so there's plenty of places you can go to.
Also if you have any REALLY technical questions that I cant help you with, you can just go to http://www.mythlogiccorp.com
and they have a live support, I believe it's always the same guy, and he helps out daily with this other forum I visit, and will be able to help you out since he builds the laptops in their shop. (it's complicated, but long story short is most resellers rarely touch your laptop and are just middle men, while mythlogic is one of the few who get the laptops sent to them and assemble them, then send them to you)
