But you said "computer", not extra stuff.
As I assume that an Apple user will only buy a computer made by Apple and nothing else, that product is exactly the same whatever the way you get it: a shiny white box with a fruit logo on it, a picture, a few letters and a barecode beside green-washing logos.

How can it matter from which store you get that box, when it's clear they're all the same anyway?

Sure, if you don't know exactly what's your computing device needs are, you're better in the hand of Apple than anywhere else. After all, Apple is *the* brand that knows what's better for anyone...

Very many Apple users know exactly what they want & need. They just go for the total experience. In the same way that we like the total experience provided by Apple products, we also like to have a good overall experience when we go shopping. We won't be going to Best Buy for those products, because buying Apple products from a non-Apple Store site is very much similar to using Apple products with Windows machines - it's very dissatisfying.
