Is it better to buy a laptop with cash?

I know that with smartphones it is better to buy them with cash because of identification numbers like IMEI etc., but does this also apply to laptops/computers?

i mean buying anything is better with cash that not buying it with cash


When should you buy something with cash? What is your threat, you will face with known ownership. Every asset is a liability.

Laptops for me are a low risk.

Should you own a laptop that you purchased anonymously, maybe. What is your use case. Some things you might own just in case. Should you purchase a firearm with cash? Maybe.

Are you buying a stolen laptop, yes use cash.

If you’re buying a phone with cash then you’ll want to buy a computer with cash for the same reasons. You pay with cash if you don’t want anybody to know your purchase history; this applies to anything.
