Hi all, I am buying my first Mac, MacBook Pro retina, 15in base model here in the next couple of days hopefully and have some questions. First, Im not sure if there is much advantage buying at the apple store over best buy. The apple store did say that it would be all set up and running before I leave the store bad best buy told me that is an additional charge. Having never had a Mac I would hope during the setup an apple rep would be able to answer some questions while I wait but I'm sure there time is valuable as there are plenty of other customers. If buying direct from apple would I need an appointment or can I just walk in? Currently both best buy and apple are the same price and the stores are a couple blocks from one another. Now having said that is the office programs and iPhoto, ivideo, garage band apps installed or do they require a download? Is it worth buying ms office or is the free office app that comes with the Mac sufficient for average use. I'm not in college and not writing papers but may write the occasional letter. Looking at maybe buying photoshop elements but not having a drive on it I assume buying in store is useless since it comes on a disk. I'm not going to be doing a lot of heavy stuff and for me the i7 is overkill but I do want the extra real estate on the screen, otherwise I'd get a 13in.
