As far as good online stores... you can't really find a much better deal than apple.com Some times you can find cheeper prices but only by like $5.00. Apple some times has rebates (like they do right now) The One thing you can get from other sites is free stuff like RAM and Zip drives. Here are some of my favorets:
I don't know if you know this or not but the MacWorld convention is happening in 2 days and there mostlikely will be some new Macs. I suggest that you wait till then and get the latest and the greatest or get a good deal on one of the older models.
as was said, most others beat apple's price by literally 5 bucks, but often don't have the ability to custom order various specs... they also give you things like ram or whatever as a bonus... just depends what you need.
macmall also works. i think that's where we got my parents' imac from... got some extra ram and whatnot
>Not as nice as rumrunners,...
Well now we know who's been drinking the last 24 hours.
My father has purchased some equipment from www.smalldog.com (that's where I got the Cube for around $1400 and factory refurbished 15 inch monitor for $529). They also have excellent prices on older systems.
opps.. the only thing worse than my spelling is my typing. Im on a Dell laptop right now and I'm still getting used to the keybord. I guess thats what I get for not proof reading.
True, Apple charges sales tax but you can get student discounts from Apple and you can build to order from the Apple stite. The student discount is not that great and infact it was only a little bit better than than not paying taxes. I wanted to build to order so it was the way to go for me.
Bust out the trusy slide rule and figure out how much it will be at each place and factor in your states Sales tax. My state is pretty high.
