    B&H charges no tax and their Apple products are always cheaper. Free shipping as well. So which do you recommend I buy Apple products from? B&H accepts Paypal too.

    If you think you might have a reason to use it, the return policy is better at the Apple Store.

    Have you considered Amazon? No tax, free shipping, and an excellent return policy.

    If you want a standard configuration, buy from any authorized reseller. If you want pre-loaded software or any other upgraded feature at the time of purchase you're limited to the Apple online store.

    I'd stick with Apple Store as well. The fact that I can return an item if something is wrong or exchange with higher/lower configuration without hassle is worth the extra money for me.

    Take a look at PowerMax.com. They are an online Apple reseller located in Oregon. No sales tax and a wide selection of good stuff.

    All my photo gear is from B&H, and they are good. I still like to patronize the Apple Store and put some of my money back into the local economy.
