This deal is better (at least for me):

B&H Photography doesn't charge tax where I live (California) while Amazon does. For a high price item such as a computer, tax comes out to be a pretty sizable amount. Add the fact that California has one of the highest tax rates in the US which was recently increased by 1%, B&H is better (for me).

I think the one from Apple is a much better deal, if you don't need the space like me. 128 GB for $1269:

$250 is a lot for another 128 GB of space.

B&H also offers 50% off AppleCare and free Parallels Desktop 8 with the purchase any new Mac as well.

MacConnection has it brand new for $1350, which is only $18 more than Apple's refurb after tax (in my state). Worth it, IMO

There is a difference, however slight, between refurbished and brand new. But that is a pretty good deal!

Agreed.
Doesn't MacConnection charge tax?

Also, doesn't apply to most, but I am tax exempt so Apple is a great deal for me.
