Should I Buy A Mac From B&H Photo Video?


Is it safe to buy a Mac from B&H Photo Video instead of the Apple Store?

B&H Photo Video is an Authorized Apple Reseller. That means B&H has received authorization from Apple to sell Macs, iPads, etc. This is great for consumers because B&H prices are generally much lower than the Apple Store. Items ship promptly (usually with free shipping) and you receive the same warranty as if you had made the purchase at the Apple Store. In fact, you still receive all the benefits of the Apple Store (classes, Genius Bar access, etc.) when you buy from B&H Photo Video. The main difference between buying from B&H and the Apple Store is that B&H will likely offer a more affordable price.

While B&H does have great prices, they aren't always the lowest. App Sliced also recommends checking sellers like MacMall, Adorama, Amazon, Costco, Target, etc.
