‌iPad Pro‌

Apple's 2020 MacBook Air includes faster processors, a new scissor switch keyboard, and overall 80 percent faster graphics performance than the previous generation. 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.

On the tablet side, the new iPad Pro has a faster A12Z Bionic chip, a new Magic Keyboard accessory with a built-in trackpad, an Ultra Wide camera, a LiDAR Scanner, and more. It also features a square camera bump with a 12MP Wide camera and a 10MP Ultra Wide camera, which can zoom out two times to capture a wider field of view.

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 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.

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.
