Hello everyone, my first post on this forum. Im so glad i found this place. In two weeks i will be coming to the USA for the first time, for vacation. I always wanted to have a laptop from Apple, and ive decided that i will get the macbook. And hopefully stop using the pc altogether. There are a few issues, that i want to ask about. I want to buy the white 2,4GHz, 2G, 160GB hard drive (apple online shop has the price of 1299USD) Also i will need to get a few extras like Iwork08, Airport Express, and some kind of a case (neoprane maybe). I checked the prices on the Apple website and at least according to the online shop it should be around 1512USD. Just to give you an idea how much more expensive it is where i live - this setup, with the extras would cost me about 2350USD if not more. My first question is, which apple store is good in Washington? I wont have a car there, so i will have to take the subway. From what i see on googlemap the Pentagon City apple store is close to a station, also the clarendon store isnt to far i think. I guess i could buy slightly cheaper from an online retailer, or maybe even some other shop, but i prefer to pay the extra few dollars and get everything from the apple store. Also is it safe to travel on the subway with such a new purchase? I know its a silly question, but where im from, you probably wouldnt make it to far carrying a macbook box. I dont want to make this post to long, so the few other questions regarding this purchase will be asked later on. I hope i wrote this more or less clear, english in not my first language, sorry.
