I live in the US, and I’m looking to help my 70’s parents buy their first Mac. They definitely aren’t good with technology and have Windows PCs now (mainly use web browser, iTunes, and Word), but also have iPads and iPhones. Are there any differences with regard to where we buy their Mac with regard to support, warranty, etc? Is it true that Apple will provide the same level of support/warranty for any Mac sold from a certified retailer? If bought from Best Buy would they also be able to reach out to the “Geek Squad” if need be? Any particular benefits of any other (US based) retailer? I live halfway across the country from them, but will actually be in the Middle East for about 6 months after the purchase so I won’t be able to provide very much tech support for the foreseeable future. Edit: Another consideration is data transfer from their other desktop PC. If bought from Apple I assume I can bring their desktop in for data transfer? Anyone else do this?
