    Hi all,

    I'm looking to buy a new MacBook Pro this week, and am wondering where to buy. I've bought my previous machine at MacMall, but am wondering if I'm missing the bigger picture.

    I figure MacMall is better because:
    -- no tax
    -- free goodies
    -- cheaper

    would you still order at Apple.com?

    Thanks!

    I stopped buying at MacMall about 10 years ago, when they started being 1/2 a step above those Brooklyn back-o-the-truck shops. They used to be great. I like Apple's refurb store, great prices, same machines, same warranty. And sometimes you get an over-specced box with more ram than you paid for.

    :) which back-o-the-truck shops?
    apple.com refurb is great now - the models from two weeks ago are on a 40%+ off sale now... but I, having waited almost 4 years to upgrade, will get me a shiny new C2D. :)

    I have always had a good experience with buying stuff from Amazon.com.
    Btw, they do not charge any taxes on MBPs as well.
