    I'm looking to buy a macbook but I wanted to know if the apple store is the only place I can get one. If there are other vendors do they offer better prices or does it make any difference where I buy one from?

    Don't forget the apple site some times has refurbished models if your looking to save a bit of money.

    Also, if you are a student or an educator there is a small discount offered through the apple store. Another bonus of the online Apple store is that it makes it quite easy to upgrade your mac (memory, hard drive, etc.).

    This isn't a bad place to start hunting

    As mentioned earlier, a lot of the macrumors community suggest buying apple refub (found on their website). Supposedly, they are almost always indistinguishable from new macs.

    I've never heard of an unreliable source, but I'd be careful if you went to ebay :)

    enjoy the macbook

    The Apple Store is not the only place to get a Mac, but it's the only way to build one to order. If you're looking for a stock Mac, those can be had in many B&M stores and a plethora of online stores. Good luck!
