MacMall just added the 2010 Mac Pro.
what is the advantage of buying from Mac mall?
instant rebate and no taxes
Well, if you don't live in California, that is. Taxes for me.
They collect sales tax in CA, IL, TN, and NY.
Of course there is a big disadvantage: if you get a DOA machine enduring root canal therapy is more plesant they trying to get them to take the unit back and send you a replacement. Usually they will just send you to Apple and Apple will only agree to repair, not replace the machine. Huge PITA for a machine you never even used.
Of course this is the policy of most of the Internet/catalog stores. I think Amazon might be one of the few that does happily exchange DOA machines.
I have been buying stuff from Macmall for years (maybe a decade) and have never had a problem. They are very good about returns.
Can you buy the 6-core from MacMall? I didn't see it in their configurator for the base quad.
Link for the lazy. it appears that they only sell the standard configs?
They have a configuration page. However, right now they don't have an option for the ATI-5870. I called about this and they said they should have that option available as soon as they get stock.
Consider yourself lucky then. I once rec'd a DOA MP and tried to get it exchanged. They loved to parrot their no returns on Apple products policy (including DOA) posted on their site. PITA but learned my lesson. I only buy Apple prods. from Apple and Amazon now just for piece of mind.
I am surprised they would not allow a return on a defective product. Was their explanation on a return of a defective product completely that their policy doesn't allow the return of Apple products?
Thanks for the heads up. For me tax is about $280 on a $4,000 machine. That's a couple of nice hard drives.
Yes. They pointed out in the "fine print" that they don't accept returns for Apple products, even DOA.
Yeah, much better off buying from Amazon if you are not going to buy from Apple directly.
