I'd buy from an out-of-state that won't charge sales tax and has free shipping. That's about the 'best' deal you're gonna get. If you don't mind going older (and can avoid the tax), macmall.com...

"PCIe flash drive" means an m.2 PCIe storage module, which Macs have never used. As an extra note, m.2 is very new, and only a handful of modern computers have slots for them. Nothing like this...

Odd, the Apple Store by me had a bunch of them, the old style even.

You can use an 60W or 85W with the L-shaped plug or the really old straight one. You can't use the "MagSafe 2" style. You can...

That's accurate.

Previously iCloud was a pool of storage, but it was only accessible through apps designed to work with it, ala Apple stuff. You as a user didn't have a way directly into it, you...

Since you have used PC/Windows for a long time, maybe you've used Windows 8.x. Windows 8.x does a similar concept, syncing various system settings and preferences into OneDrive.
