I am on my way to purchasing a PB (my first personal mac after working with them for a long time now, this is 7 years in the making) and the choice comes to me to either purchase online, or goto an apple store. Heres the catch... 1) I live in a small Colorado town, thus no Apple store (there is a dealer, but are unable to award education discounts) So no store to buy from here. 2) Im out of town for a week in March (River trip, yay) and there is a good possibilty of the PB to arrive during that time if ordered online. 3) I am visiting my parents in Houston the weekend after that, so I have the option of buying a PB from the Houston Apple store. Anyone know of and major advantages/disadvantages of each? I dont think I will be getting any BTO's for it (by the way what does BTO mean?). But what if I wanted too, is that an option from the shop? There is the Possibility of the PB arriving before I head down to Houston, but buying from the store there is no wait between spending money and play time. Any thoughts would be great, Thanks.
