I was shocked to discover that B&H was so much cheaper. shocked


B&H is almost always the best place to buy mac accessories. I was quite surprised to find that out

On the other hand, my daughter just told me about B&H's labor relations issues.

That's one way to keep prices low. :∞P

never seen that happen. they can't just refund the price of your insurance to avoid paying out on it. that'd be all kinds of illegal.

(That's slolerner whom you quoted, not me.)

My first thought was a full refund of AppleCare, but I quickly realized that I'm entitled to a fully functional Mac.

If they can engineer a battery replacement, so it goes, but if not, a new computer is the only really acceptable answer; the very significant discount on a new Mac that you suggested doesn't really cut it.

I run in to weird stuff like that from time to time. A few years back I bought a new (Canon PowerShot S3IS) digital camera... from DELL. *shrug* $260 instead of $399 iirc. No idea why. Did not care.

To the small extent that I look, it looks like B&H's prices have gone up since they were unionized.

I guess so. I paid $189.00. I thought I'd better get it right away in case it went up. It went up!! Still cheaper than anywhere else at this point.
