The new ‌MacBook Air‌ features a Magic Keyboard with a redesigned scissor mechanism that delivers 1mm of key travel, plus a new inverted-"T" arrangement for the arrow keys, similar to the 16-inch MacBook Pro.

I bought my 16” MBP with them. Saved $350 or so on the build + 10% on sales tax. Took a couple days longer to ship than it would’ve been had I ordered through Apple, but didn’t have any issues.

Yes. Bought my 16" MBP from them when they first launched. They had the best deal on launch day. And had no issues with the order or delivery.


Sounds very dodgy that a Apple product is discounted, and further that it is brand new Apple products.

Honestly, you must not be paying much attention when new models launch. The 16 MBP had a bunch of retailers offering discounts on launch day. Including Adorama and B&H. It's not unusual to see deals on brand new products. They're just usually pretty small discounts

I’ve bought from them for years. More so before Apple Stores popped up all over.

Of the 3rd party Apple shops I’ve used used over the years, Expercom has usually been my favorite. Like anything else I still shop around and such. Not sure if it matters but my experience is with their brick-and-mortar stores. I don’t remember if I’ve ever used their online store.
