    Usually online retailers like Amazon and Macmall offer Apple products with a discount. Moreover, you buy it from the comfort of your seat. Why take the trouble of going to a physical retail Apple Store to make the purchase?

    (question regarding official Apple stores..)

    Beats me. Because it's fun, I guess. Last few Apple purchases I made were at the retail store, but I'm planning on getting an iPhone 5 within the next couple of months, and I'll probably just go to the Sprint store a few blocks from my house, rather than going all the way to the mall just for the "experience" of the retail store.

    I buy online if I know exactly what I'm going for. But during my recent laptop search, I wanted to try the look and feel of the retina vs nonretina Pro 15". So the in store sampling really is a big draw for me.

    I always buy from online stores that don't charge sales tax, especially high priced items
