If you want to buy an apple product and there is an apple store near by, I don't understand why anyone wouldn't buy from them directly. What kind of customer thinks of best buy as a place to buy apple products? They aren't any cheaper. In other retailers that are now out of business, I often saw older generation products( macs, ipods, ect) sold at current generation prices.

Now having said that, many people do buy iphones at their carrier stores, but they often do a better job with more complicated phone plans than apple.
