The Apple Store or Major On-Line Retailers
I am not suggesting that the websites you mentioned are trying to rip you off, but you have to be very careful about this.
Compare the specs on the Apple Store site with the specs on these other machines. Are they the same? They should be. Is there a warranty on the thing. Do you have to send Western Union payment first, before you receive your purchase?
A common practice is to sell discontinued models for much less, sometimes a whole lot less, than the same name machine is being sold at the Apple Store.
In the case of style-gadgets, their prices are in Euro's. Remember to add transatlantic shipping and import charges on your MacBook with the European version of OS X installed. Fortunately the power adapter is the 110v/240v auto switching version or you would have to buy a new one of those.
Beware of sites, who may be completely legitimate, who advertise the MacBook as "Apple MacBook MA255LL/A 13.3" Notebook PC "
Makes you wonder if they know what they actually have.
Finally, eqitech is offering a discontinued PowerBook for a disgusting price.
Far be it from me to tell you not to go there, you are free to buy from wherever you choose.
I will say one thing though: CAVEAT EMPTOR! (Let the buyer beware)
