Where to buy MBPr in LA
Please forgive me as i'm sure it's been asked before but searching through the forums hasn't yielded much for this (it may be that my search terms are wrong) but I am British and I am relocating to LA for a year on an 01 work visa (which I hope will get extended). Over here in the UK, the only place you can buy Apple Products really is Apple or PCWorld (which is just an awful company). The number of resellers we have here is very small in comparison to the USA and they tend to be small localised companies for the most part.
I want to buy a 13.3" Macbook Pro Retina whilst I am out in Los Angeles as I will only have my iPad and iPhone with me and I need a small, reasonably portable laptop to use (I need the Retina screen for work, video editing and music composition, so an Air would not be useful, i've looked into this).
Are there better places to buy the MBPr that offer a discount or bundled software over and above what Apple offer please? I'm not particularly familiar with the various large US stores, like Target and so on as i've never had recourse to visit them. Are there usually any sales going on at the start of the year in places like this that would be better for me to wait for before purchasing please?
