    Just curious if you all by directly from Apple or one of there vendors.

    I'm a fan of Mac Mall, can't beat there fast delivery, and you can order up until 10pm at night and it'll still be shipped the same day.


    So you where do you buy all your apple gear?

    I buy from amazon.com. I love there $100-$150 rebates, and the reliability. If they say it's going to be there on a certain day, it will be. Also, I buy from them because I think paying $225 in tax is absolutely ridiculous.

    I have purchased all of my online material from Apple (PowerBook, Office, iWork, Tiger, Lacie 250 GB). Mainly because I got educational discounts on those products through Apple, so I really had no other choice...

    Well MacMall Gets two thumbs up again. .

    Ordered a G5 yesterday afternoon, it shipped last night 9pm via 2 day service. But I checked tracking this morning, and it's already on a vehicle for delivery today :)

    Can't Wait!

    I use the online Apple Store for big hardware purchases like my powerbook. I'm also a fan of NewEgg for other, smaller purchases. I've bought 2 sticks of ram from them as well as my EyeTV 200 without problem.

    Another vote for Apple Education store.

    For most things I have bought, education price + tax is still cheaper than third-party sites (MacMall, etc.), though sometimes it's close.
