    Hi everyone,
    So i've been searching the web to buy a new 15in Macbook Pro retina display (2015 version), and I noticed that there's a 100$-150$ price change between apple store and B&H or Adorama. Can anyone tell me why this is? And where is it recommended to buy?

    thanks :)

    The device is the sane regardless of "where" you get it from.
    Wherever is the most convienant...

    Why, normal apple and extracting ever last $

    I've bought from B&H before and they are a reputable company. I think the computer is even drop shipped from Apple (B&H orders it from Apple). Additionally if you don't live in New York, no sales tax. AppleStore will charge you sales tax (I am assuming you're in the United States). Returns are probably easier with AppleStore.

    Apple Store has a 14 days ¨No-Questions-Asked¨Return Policy which you can return at any of the up-teen Apple ¨Brick and Mortar¨Stores.

    If I am not mistaken, unless the product is defective, B&H does not accept returns just because you didn't like it.
    You should look up their return policies before you buy from B&H or Adorama.

    Thank you all for the comments. But do you know why the price of product varies from each seller?
    Why does the product cost more at the apple store? is there anything different with their selling deal?

    I when with the student discount ($100) on the sale price of $1709 @ Best Buy, used the BB credit card for 5% discount (points) plus another $34 in points. Think Apple missed the boat, at least for me.

    Plus picked up the next day
