A lot of people go to a B&M store and take advantage of the service staff etc and then order the products online without compensating the store and/or staff for their time and expertise.


That's one of the stupidest things I've ever heard. You're already there, just buy it. Why would you then go home and wait three weeks for a discount thats nullified by shipping costs?

In the US, BB, in store, matches online prices

Same in Canada - see Post #6.
To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

There's a lot of intangibles that you can only experience firsthand with the actual model. For example, the size of the shift keys compared to the ASDFJKL; position, or whether the trackpad interferes with the palms of your hands. I actually had my heart set on a laptop for its cost until I realized that there were so many flaws with it ergonomically that it would be a pain in the arse for me if I did get it.


Of course if you could view the product in a store that would be ideal to see its physical dimensions, but you probably will find it cheaper online.
