Purchase from Apple website vs. local shop
So… This is not a mean hearted post but I’m just curious. Local store versus purchasing straight from Apple. What is the advantage? Sure, you’re helping somebody out there that is passionate about Apple products. I get that. But there is zero other added value to purchasing my computer from them versus Apple. it’s either me going on the Apple website and punching in the configuration I want or it’s me telling them what configuration I want and them going into Apple and punching in the configuration. It’s all going to get to me the same way. I know, I know, I know… Support the little person. I get it. Otherwise, I don't. I don't live NEAR a dealer, so it would be a trek for me and I wouldn't be establishing a relationship. Or maybe i'm missing something. Enlighten me.
New Hampshire! And lucky me, I work in NH 😀
But if the purchase price is above the Massachusetts limit, I do report it on my state income tax.
And yes, Apple has included state sales taxes for many years.
