    I need to get a Mac by the middle of next week. I'm looking at the 13" MBA (i7, 8Gb, 256 GB SSD). Should I buy it through Apple Store or MacMall?

    Buy which ever is cheapest. I think Macmall is usally cheaper then even the student discount.

    Only time to buy directly from Apple is when your positive a new version of the mac you want is coming out. This one came out in March so I am 85% sure it won't be updated till next year. I have the new air and it's awesome !!!

    My dads birthday is at the start of October and I knew a Mac show was happening a week or 2 later. I thought it was to update the iMacs but could have been ipads as well. My brother and sister made me buy him the iPad 3 so he had something to open on his birthday. I got it at microcenter to save 50 or $100 bucks. I really can't remember and the new ipad came out 2 weeks later. He didn't really care but I did.

    My friend did the same thing but got it directly from Apple. Apple let him return the ipad and got the ipad 4 ...... :mad:

    Everything else being equal, I'd just do Apple so as to avoid how much spam (physical mail and email) you're gonna get from MacMall.

    I ended up ordering the 13" MBA (i7/8/256) at Apple instead of MacMall.
