    Does anyone have an opinion on whether it is better to purchase a MacPro from the official Apple internet store, or from a salesperson on the telephone located in Texas? I'm going to buy the MacPro 8 core tomorrow so I hope I can decide very soon. The salesperson said he can give a 3% discount and it would take about a week. Thanks in advance.

    If you buy online you can use the educational discount (which is more than 3%).

    And unless you're in college, that's illegal.

    Illegal? Or just frowned upon?

    Apple's 'Rules' are the law! You can be beheaded for things such as jailbreaking your iPhone. :D

    Section in the US Code or appropriate State Code showing you to be right?

    Have you checked the Amazon.com price on the model you're looking at? They usually sell Mac's at a slight discount off of retail and you can save on sales tax as well, which is significant on a $3K purchase!

    Or what about the refurbs on the Apple webstore?

    I'd trust either one of those places more than a salesman on the telephone in Texas! :eek:
