    The title of this post is simple. What about your answer? What ever way you buy and answer this, What is your reason for it?

    I personally have bought plenty of Apple hardware from the Apple website direct but mainly reserve my purchases for the actual Apple store so I can see it, Touch it and most importantly make sure it works properly before I leave with it driving an hour each direction to get there.

    Devices I get through my carrier. Work requires it... But cases, etc I have use the Store App and even did express checkout... Scan, pay and go... Works pretty sweet.

    I buy my work line devices from my job. I get discounts and payment plans through my bosses. However for my personal line, I got my 5s from the Apple Store directly. I will likely get the iPhone 6 unlocked from the Apple Store as well.

    I've never been to an Apple Store but it's on my Bucket List 😬

    I get most of my devices from my carrier or from eBay

    I've been to my "local" Apple store a few times but never purchased a phone there. Got a warranty swap and cases. I got my original 5 from my carrier and my wife's 5 but most other Apple hardware comes from 2nd hand purchases.

    I get my devices at my local carrier store. I want to see it and touch it to make sure it works properly. I've bought accessories at the Apple store.

    Same here. But I'm lucky to have an Apple store 10 minutes from home and something like 7 or 8 others within 40 or so minutes.

    I am usually that person up at 3am on release day placing the iPhone or iPad order. I use the app since it was the alarm on my iPhone that was set to wake me. Any purchases outside of that is done at the Apple Store. Fortunately it's about 2 miles from my home.

    I get my iPhones from the carrier. iPods Macs and iPads from the physical Apple Store. There are like four or five within 20 mins of me. But I usually drive about 40-45min to Delaware to the Apple Store. No sales tax.

    Use local carriers and businesses to purchase iDevices and accessories. Closes Apple store is a hike.
