    I am planning to buy a mba but I'm wondering if there is a big difference between buying it from the apple online store or a store (which is close to my house) that calls themselve a 'premium reseller' (http://www.ifactors.nl/). If it would need any repairs or so, would I have to wait longer if I had bought it from apple directly and send it to them or if I buy it from the reseller and take it back there?

    Also, I'm can't make up my mind regarding which one I should take... This would be my first mac and my primary computer. I will be using an external display at home and an external drive. Most of the time, I'm just browsing with a lot of tabs open, listening to some music on itunes, downloading some stuff, maybe some pdf's, smoking a joint something like that. Any useful advice? I am afraid that when I buy the 11'', it ill eventually be a bit too slow and just regret that i didnt pay the extra bucks for the 13''. And that the screen is to small to work on/... but ok I guess the latter part is represented in enough threats.

    thanks in advance!

    Yup with the apple online store you'll be anxiously waiting for it to arrive!

    Online store - you can upgrade to 4GB, you can still take it to premium resellers to repair it if needed. Only reason I'd go to a reseller is if they have deals (sometimes they give freebies with a new machine)
