Hi,

I recommend going to those Premium Resellers

They are like apple store in other country, have in store staff there to help you out.

others are like department store with a little Apple booth which dont offer much.

Whatever you choose, PLEASE DON'T GO TO SOME RANDOM STORE ON THE STREET, they are mostly scammers, well not really try to scam you but I just dont trust them. I know they are not being completely honest and the main income of them are from tourists, I think you know what I mean.

How do I know? I live there

Good luck and have fun

Ask them to boot the laptop before purchase.

I think what he means is to boot up and check with it before paying, dont know whether they will allow you to do so though

Ask for Reginald or Wilson.

They are awesome there, I get most of my stuff through them, nice guys and you will have no problem, they will start it for you if you want to and if you have any problems or questions call them and they will fix it for you or replace the unit.

It's a big company in HK with many outlets so you don't have to worry.

Only thing is the keyboards are the standard English layout so if you are after a European (German or whatever) keyboard you are out of luck.

Bring a jacket, it could be cold!
