BH Photo

Do most people have a favorable view of B & H Photo. I want to buy a macmini from there but Detroit is pretty far from NY so it's not like I can drive to their store if I have a problem with the unit.

What about their applecare? the prices are insanely low ($52)! This is one of the reasons I was going to buy from there.

The sale ends today, so if anyone has an opinion, I'd love to hear it ASAP.

Have no fear, they are legitimate. Also they are Authorized Apple Resellers. I have personally made multiple purchases from them.

If there is a problem with the machine, you don't need to drive to B&H, you can call Apple support or go to your local Apple store.

I bought a Mac mini package of theirs two weeks ago (Base Mini + Wireless Keyboard + Magic TrackPad + AppleCare + Software), and I couldn't be happier. Shipping was immediate. Everything came exactly as promised. I registered my AppleCare with no problems, and, as AppleMango said, if I have any problems, I'll deal directly with Apple or my local Apple Store.

If B&H is offering AppleCare at their usual highly discounted price when you buy a Mac then there probably isn't a deal out there that can touch it. You can check the L.A. Computer Co. website to compare AC prices. It is consistently the low-cost alternative; if the B&H deal is lower then it won't be cheaper from any legitimate dealer. (eBay AppleCare auctions are rife with ripoffs, especially the dealers who e-mail the serial numbers.)

B&H been around a million years. Used to go to their little store on west 17th when I was a photographer assistant 30 years ago. 10 deep at the counters!

Just bought a new mini from them, free parallels software, Apple keyboard and of course couldn't pass up the $52 applecare as well.

Lucky you... you get to beat sales tax. Not me tho'.

IOW, they're top of the line pro dealership.
