    I'm planning on getting the 2017 model MacBook Pro 13 with 16GB ram, 512GB storage, and an i5 processor. It'll cost $1,849 total, tax included. Is there anything I should be aware of? Like special promotions or deals that are going on right now. I'm trying not to spend more than $2000 dollars. Thanks!

    Yeah..not qvc so much...they usually don’t have fully decked out stuff available.. at least not that I’ve seen when I’m thumbing thru channels.. usually to get what u want like that u gotta go to Apple... I’m considering pulling the trigger myself on either an Air i7-512gb or MBP... never had an Apple computer.. last one I really worked on was an Apple IIe+...lol

    Definitely check out Best Buy. I purchased my 2017 MacBook Pro (non-Touchbar model) from Best Buy. Heck, a couple of weeks ago, Best Buy had it on sale for $150 less than what I paid.

    What about B&H Photo/Video? They have the macs selling around the Apple student pricing discount price, and they don't charge any tax if you ship to states outside of New York and New Jersey. I feel like buying from places like Best Buy will end up costing me about the same or more after taxes.

    Check out apple’s refurbished website. I bought my MacBook Pro in October from there. It has 16gb ram and 512 storage and is a June 2017 version wit i5 chip. $1609 is what I paid, then I bought AppleCare. I have had zero issues and I love my refurbished MacBook.

    I don’t normally watch the channel but I’ve picked up some great deals on electronics on the website.

    That sounds like a plan too!

    I've purchased from them on occasion, and found their pricing to be quite competitive and I've been happy with their customer support.

    I ended up getting the 13 inch pro from B&H. The keyboard will take some getting used to, but I really like how it feels.

    Adjusting how? Adjusting to macOS? Adjusting to the MousePad? If you're switching over from Windows, check out some of the tips found via the below link.

    The keyboard. It's just taking a lot of effort to type words. I have to be a little more deliberate.

    I picked up an open box 13" mb pro from bestbuy. I am convinced that this computer was marked at this price because someone in the store was going to purchase it. It was marked as satisfactory condition. When I looked at it, there was a single scratch dent or mark except for a very tiny tiny tiny ding in a corner that I noticed after 2 days of trying to see why it was only marked for $1034. Hell of a find I bet the poor ******* at bestbuy was pissed. No one wanted to show me this open box when I asked about it. They showed me every other open box except this one hahaha.
