Buying from Adorama and B&H Photo gives the benefit of no sales tax in many states, as these two stores only charge tax in New York/New Jersey and New York, respectively.

AppleCare

B&H Photo is offering several discounts on AppleCare this week. The AppleCare Protection Plan for the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro and the 15-inch MacBook Pro is available for $244, $105 off Apple's regular price.

The AppleCare Protection Plan for the MacBook Air and the 13-inch Retina Macbook Pro is available for $174, $75 off Apple's regular price.

The AppleCare Protection Plan for the Mac Pro is available for $174, $75 off Apple's regular price, while the AppleCare Protection Plan for the iMac is available for $129, $40 off Apple's regular price.

Before making a purchase of a Mac or iOS device, make sure to consult our Buyer's Guide to find out if it's a good time to buy. For example, because the MacBook Air was updated in April, the Buyer's Guide indicates that now is a good time to purchase.

Anyone bought from b&h photo? That apple care deal sounds pretty good.


For reference, i buy a lot of photography stuff from them.
When i bought my NEC 30inch colormanaged monitor i had to return 4 of them because of dead pixels (not B&H fault, just ****** QA from nec), they took them back EACH time without any problem and sent me a new one.
They even paid for shipping on the first two.

Def a good company to buy from

If college discounts work with these I can get a nice deal on an rMBP.

I'm wishing for a 17" rMBP but i do not qualify for the College discount.


Don't think the College discount would help much, since they don't make a 17" rMBP... ;)

Yeah they are high on photographers list as an online dealer. They are authorized by major electronic companies to sell their products. I've purchased from them before and so have my photography friends. When this deal was out I think they beat Best Buy by a few dollars.
