    Has anyone purchased their macbook from best buy? Just curious. Out of all the macs I have purchased they were purchased at an apple store.

    I snagged one there since they had 2 years no interest and it covered Apple Products. Granted I didnt' get my ed discuont but I'm not paying interest so that covers it and I Can take my time and pay it off.

    They were running it a week before Christmas. Haven't checked back to see if they'vebeen doing it since. It was obviously on teh Best Buy Card.

    Did you go along with their warranty or did you get Applecare?

    I only go first-party so I only do Applecare. Since I get ed discounts I'll get that on my discount ($199 I think for MacBook). I have time for that though, you have through teh first year, though I would do it by that 90-day mark when you lose phone support.

    Never do Best Buy extendeds. Won't get into a debate on them here, just my personal choice.

    Thanks for mentioning that. When they update the MBPs I was planning on paying it off over time. I can get 180 days no interest from apple, but maybe I can get more from BB :D

    So you can get Applecare at Bestbuy? I was thinking on picking one up there and wanted to get Applecare.

    Nope. You can only buy BB warranty. But they do offer an accidental damage plan which I believe is much better then anything apple has offered.

    I got mine at the Apple store. I will probably never get one from Best Buy, since I just really do not like them in general. I am hesitant to get accessories and even media (games, music, etc) from them, much less a whole computer.
