    I'm looking to buy the new MacBook pro 15" with hi res option. Unfortunately amazons stock model is the standard "low" res option. I'd love to buy on amazon because of triple point rewards but I'd like the hi res model. Anyone know where else to look besides the apple store?

    Yup. You can get the lowest spec'd MBP15 with hi-res anti-glare on the refurb store for $1649. Not sure if it's up there now, but I've seen up pop up a few times in the past couple weeks.

    Micro Center is the best place to buy computer/ computer parts. It sells new MBP cheaper than the refurbished ones in Apple store. Apple store is only good for people who either don't care about money or don't know about computer.

    macmall was cheaper than apple store/edu discount in my case.

    they don't know too much about what they're doing, but money talks.

    So, looks like ebay was the way to go. found a top of the line 2011 15" mbp w apple care till 2014 for $2099. Spec'd out on apple.com, it comes out to be $2799 plus tax. Even with my mom's educational discount, ebay was still a killer deal.

    I heard of this place called The Apple store. Its got great products and no hassle service. 15" MBPs starting out at $2,199 and they are factory fresh with that brand new Apple smell.

    I had the same problem, I wanted a BTO iMac but couldn't find a good price, or a tax free one. Try BHphotovideo.com they have lots of configurations, and very reliable

    Yah it's too bad they are closed every other day and have crappy ethics on top of it. Google their lawsuits before you decide to give them money.
