    How do they buy them cheaper than they are advertised on Apples website. They are selling the new ones for 100 dollars cheaper than they are new. Where do they buy them?

    Likely a reseller so they get them for less then retail and are willing to take a slight cut in profit.

    i got mine for $600 roughly less than RRP here in japan.

    shops here give away $200 worth of points when you buy a macbook. youd be stupid to get one at the apple store.

    MacMall sells iMac and MBP for $100 under Apples price (after a 'rebate') as well as free printer and software 'after rebate'. This is about the best deal you can get. Coupled with Tax savings you save nearly $400 if you had to buy the Notebook, Software, Printer and pay tax on all of it.

    If you are using eBay, make sure you use live.com's 25% cash back link to get $200 back in 60 days on your purchase. Though the MacMall deal is technically still better.
