Last time I bought a Mac I got an iBook on amazon.com for pretty cheap and brand new. This time around I'm getting the 13" MBP with an education discount so my choices are limited to online (lame) or a nice little Apple store. Only thing is... despite me living in a populated area, Apple doesn't have a store near me for about 45 minutes. So, I can go to a store in the Danbury mall in CT or in the Palisades mall in NY... and I can also go to the 5th Avenue store in NYC. My question is... would buying my MBP at the flagship be that much more exciting or should I just go to the mall?
