    Would buying a unibody Macbook Pro from a reseller be more expensive then buying from say apple.com? And if i bought it at a reseller where would i take it for repairs, if they dont o repairs. A example reseller would be House of Staionary, not a Mac Store, just a computer reseller.

    Authorized resellers often package other items (sleeve, software, keyboard, etc) with a computer to put forward a better deal that you could get at Apple. It's a nice deal if you are looking for the things in the package, but if you just want the computer, look at apple's refurb store for savings in the $200-$400 price range.

    Apple services all of their computers regardless of where you purchase them. I say buy it wherever you get the best price. If that be online, even better; you won't have to put up with salespeople trying to sell you everything under the sun.
