Hi all, finally time to replace my Santa Rosa 15" with the Sandy Bridge one. I am from Europe, but will be flying in to Vermont in a few days, and wanted to get the Mac while in the US. But, there are no Apple stores in Burlington, VT. I see there is a company called Small Dog, labeled as an Apple Specialist. So, several questions: 1. Is it the same buying from a Specialist as from the Apple store? I am asking in terms of warranty, exchange, support etc. 2. If I get the MBP from an Apple Specialist, and something goes wrong, would I be able to return/exchange it in an official Apple store? 3. Would an Apple Specialist honor the educational discount? Thanks!
