    Hello
    I was wondering if it was better to get a macbook at Apple Store or on online at apple? I think you save $100 but is there any other difference?
    Thanks

    No difference at all except waiting for delivery assuming your in store purchase is in stock.

    i rather go to the store and get it. thats what i actually did. i get it right away. i even drove from toronto to buffalo and saved $300. (exchange rate was the same, or CDN was better then USD, and buffalo's taxes were half ours, and for some reason a macbook is cheaper in the US then Canada.)

    That is, assuming they have a MacBook with the EXACT specifications you want, which depending on what you do want, can be difficult to find. I bought online, because my cousin works for Apple and gets employee discounts =)

    Do you have your student ID? Or any proof you're enrolled in college/a university?

    actually im pretty sure you can get the printer. i didnt feel like waiting for shipping so i drove to the mac store at the natick mall an hour away from me to get it :) when i was there they asked if i wanted the printer deal and they also asked another guy who was buying a macbook pro.
