Not a bad deal, but you can pick up an Apple Refurbished one (in either color) for $249 directly from Apple ('').

Why is B&H promoted so heavily on here?

I’ve heard mixed opinions on them. When in US I never heard or knew anyone who had bought Apple stuff from them.
Probably because B&H is an outstanding supplier of a wide range of tech goods; cameras/lenses/accessories, lighting, computers, printers, consumer audio gear, professional video and audio equipment, TVs, drones, digital pianos, and yes, Apple stuff. I recently purchased an M2 16" MBP from B&H.

I've been dealing with B&H for 20 years. Always a great experience, fast shipping, pleasant and knowledgeable people, and never a bad experience.

B&H is one of the few remaining great authorized resellers, in my opinion. Both them and Adorama are similar. I have bought Macs from both. Top notch customer service and quick shipping. Their store in NYC is amazing if you ever visit.

They are not a huge national chain like Best Buy. But if you're in New York, it's the absolute best brick and mortar retail spot for audiovisual equipment.

They were fairly popular online because up until a few years ago, they didn't charge any sales tax if your shipping address was outside of NY/NJ. Coupled with the fact that they often post the best deals on Apple stuff, and the fact that they're 100% legit authorized, it was very often the best place to buy.

Now that they charge sales tax regardless of your shipping address, it's not quite the steal it used to be, but they still feature some of the best discounts on Apple hardware. If you browse their Macbook Pros right now, you'll find a new-in-box M1 Max / 1TB / 32GB 16.2" MBP for US$2,400 for example. That's US$1,100 off the sticker price it had a year ago when it was latest-gen.

For current-gen M2 models, they regularly feature US$150-300 discounts.
