$5000 isn't really a range. A range is usually between one number/amount and another. However, your $5000 would probably be taken to mean "My range goes from nothing to $5000" so it's not impossible.
We don't call a laptop a "piece".

I'd probably use 'model' or maybe 'unit' in lieu of 'piece'. 'Machine' is fairly common when referring to desktops, but I'm not sure if I've heard it used for laptops.
