Hi

I'm really interested in buying the new 2017 MacBook Pro 13", and was hoping to buy it online, seeing that I live 4 hours from the nearest city. I have heard bad reviews about MyiStore, and was wondering if they were true? If so, should I instead wait for Takealot to stock the new Macs?

I will be going the Johannesburg in mid August as well. Should I wait until then, and pick one up in a physical store instead?


Update* So I ordered the MacBook Pro from MyiStore and I received it within 24 hours after purchasing. Brilliant service from MyiStore and RTT.

I have used the online version of the istore as they usually have stock and the stores don't.
Never had an issue and delivery has always been within 3 days - extra day for you out in the sticks.

Physical stores are crap and people are not trained at all.

Dont get the Late 2012> models, soldered ram and SSD's, very dumb to buy one.

Get a 2011-Mid 2012 so you can upgrade yourself if needed.
