    The one with the lower price? Are there other factors to consider here? Amazon seems reputable.

    As posted, Amazon are authorised by Apple as re-sellers...You get the same level of support you'd get if you had purchased from Apple direct. I have always bought through Apple, but I have a dedicated rep there...Otherwise, I'd grab that discount too!

    I thought previous link was straight from Amazon - yeah dont purchase from a 3rd party seller. IMHO

    If it is from Amazon then go for it - Apple customer service is amazing - But Amazon rocks their world when it comes to CS - IMHO.

    £1246 student discount from the online app store

    I bought my rMBP from Amazon. I have also bought things from their third party sellers. They have two levels here in the US, those where the item is shipped by Amazon and those that are shipped by the third-party. I would use any of these three options for some items--mostly cheaper items. For something like a MBP, I personally would only buy from Amazon--not a third party seller.

    If it isn't new they wouldn't be able to list it the way they have, so go ahead and buy it from Amazon. Even though it's a third party reseller, you've got Amazon backing the purchase, so if it's not up to snuff, just return it to Amazon using their process.
