    Well said. If you can't trust them, might as well just stop doing retail business on the internet

    I bought my wifes Macbook from them on February 9th...later that month the current macbooks came out, and Amazon dropped their price on the previous generation by about 150 bux. I simply called them up and they gave me a credit for the price difference, as they offer a 30 day price guarantee after you purchase.

    Top Notch Company! I always look to Amazon for stuff as Usually they have the cheapest stuff!

    When I'm buying parts/supplies for myself or clients my order of companies is simple:
    1. NewEgg
    2. Amazon

    With Amazon Prime and $3.99 overnight shipping, and their absolutely no hassle return policy, I can't recommend them enough. I bought a 70lbs color laser printer for a client in dire need last week and it arrived the very next day, shipping thanks to Amazon Prime, $3.99 versus the $129+ it would have cost me from any other supplier.

    With that said, be careful when buying on Amazon that you are actually buying from Amazon.com and not one of their associated vendors. When buying from an associate you deal with different shipping, and most importantly, different customer service and return policies.
