Has anyone had good or bad experiences ordering computers from La Computer?
thinking about ordering a mbp from them. B and H is currently back ordered on the one I want to order.
Tried going to the local Apple store and they refused to match B and H pricing when B and H had it in stock

they used to be a go-to source for discounted AppleCare. But I've never bought hardware from them.

Few years ago bought AppleCare for MBP during 50% off sale.
No issues, prompt service.

I've bought a few thing from them in the past, and Apple Care, as noted.

Members of my MUG told me they knew LA Computer as once being a dodgy enterprise, but never mentioned exactly what the problems were. I had no problems.

I get their emails regularly but haven't seen anything of interest or at a price that makes me consider using them.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

They're a good place. Real close to FIL, so send him there to pick up stuff, then get it on next visit. No problems, excellent customer service.

Ordered once for my mother-in-law. No problems.

YMMV

I last bought hardware from them a little while ago. I walked into their warehouse in City of Industry and picked up a refurbed PowerMac 7600/132. Great machine, probably the best value Mac purchase I ever made.

But my experience may be a bit out of date.

Bought two ibooks from them in 2005. No problems with delivery or condition. They were of that batch with a bad logic board, my son had to replace his in a couple years. I only played Snood and Marathon on mine for the last ten years so it lasted until a month ago when it finally died.
