I’m about to buy (no pun intended) and found a great deal at buy.com. Open a Visa acount and get a $30 credit you can use right away. It only approves you for $2K and you can kill it off as quick as you want.
Only I just heard that Costco provides an extended warranty when you buy there for only $479. I’d get stuck with 7.5% state sales tax.
Decisions, decisions.February 4, 2009 at 6:57 pm #182504
Forgot to mention that there’s no annual fee for the Chase Visa charge card.February 4, 2009 at 10:35 pm #182500mjpileggiMember
Actually, costco has it for $459.99: http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11333685 Don’t forget, costco has free shipping, a 90 day return policy and a 2 year warranty (versus 1).
Gee, I should get a free NC10 for advertising for costco!February 6, 2009 at 11:00 pm #182497
They should put you on payroll! lol
The info you provided is very attractive and is confirmed by their site. Too bad they dont have white sammies or i would buy it as we speak.February 6, 2009 at 11:18 pm #182501
Buy.com screwed him over just now. TRUEfoe ordered this like a week ago with overnight shipping. It turns out they don’t even have them in stock, even though they pulled the money out of his account!February 6, 2009 at 11:21 pm #182498
Buy.com have bad return policy, 15 days with restocking fee or something. It’s really better to buy from a place like costco so you return it if you dont like something instead of reselling on ebay and loosing money.February 7, 2009 at 12:54 am #182502
Where’s the best place to get it in the US now with a pretty decent warranty? TRUEfoe doesn’t have a Costco membership unfortunately. Preferably black. =P It’s sad, because he’s already received his 2gb ram. lol.February 7, 2009 at 3:52 am #182499
First choice is Costco, you don’t need ‘membership’ but they have only the blue one currently.
Second choice is http://www.jr.com. They have 30 days return policy, no restocking fees.February 7, 2009 at 4:30 am #182503
Will give JR a try. =P Jeepers, now TRUE is having difficulty choosing a color. lol… Hmmm. Black or White….February 17, 2009 at 2:01 pm #182505
My Sammy arrived over the weekend, Fedex didn’t want to give it up. Product was new in box, works great, as expected. Yes Buy doesn’t have a great return policy but I haven’t returned anything I’ve bought on-line in years. A return policy covers you when you change your mind. If it arrives damaged/not working, they take care of you. If they ship something other than what you ordered (I had this happen with Buy with a motherboard years ago), they cover you. I researched this purchase to death and never expected any reason to retun it except for damage or dead out of the box. The $30 discount was applied right away and was pain free. No waiting 6-8 weeks for a rebate that might/might not show up like at JR’s. Price was $414.95 charged to my shiny new credit card which I’ll now cut up and close. Actually, I may just keep it for on-line purchases since it has such a low credit limit ($2K). The card is a Chase Visa with no annual fee. This was the least expensive price I could find, if they had had pink, my fiance would have been happy with that but white works just fine and people already asked if it was an Apple product.
