I'm in the same boat as Toff in that I've also recently got a 980m laptop (Clevo too). I did consider an upgrade but the marginal cost of getting everything refreshed plus a new warranty was low…

Re buying in US - suggest you check the bands for both 3G and LTE. Also wifi may be on different standards there too. I presume the app store region can be changed easily enough though.
