I will shop at Best Buy again when they announce they've gotten rid of The Retail Equation and stopped treating good customers like criminals who are guilty of returning 2 or 3 defective items and then banning them.

These "sale" prices are more in line with Apple should be charging MSRP.

Tempting if you need/want something but I can't bring myself to purchase a MBP in its current iteration and my MBA is still holding its own.

I would really like to see Apple's implementation of an eGPU alongside their portables which they announced last year. Where is it Apple?

So never shopping there again then? :D

I think Best Buy unnecessarily gets a bad rep. But they’re the king of
iPad sales and the last remaining big box retailer nation wide
