Hey all

I was just wondering if anyone new of any legitamite distributors?

I have serched and searched and only found scammer wholsalers who just take your money..the price is cheap the product good ...but the wholesaler(if it ever really existed)..very very bad...

I just wanted to find an honest supplier to do a little local business. I live in rural Alberta and apple is mainly US so my resources here are quite limited.

Any ideas??

Thanks

I think the only way to get apple computers would be from Apple. I would research through the apple site and see if they have any links for small business. If not I would call them and see if you can get the information from them.

wait, I think I am confused now... Do you want to start and Apple Dealer, or do you just want to buy one computer for yourself?

Yeah, although I could be wrong, I got the impression that the OP wanted to purchase a single computer at a wholesaler's price in an effort to save some cash.
If that is the case, it isn't going to happen.
Wholesaler's won't waste their time on a single unit sale to a private party. Wholesalers make their money by business from repeat business from retail outlets who order large quantity purchases.
A single unit sale to a private buyer won't get them a profit significant of putting on their books. They will make much more by keeping that unit available for a multi-piece sale to a retailer.

Just to clarify...I would like to become a small retailer in my humble little town.
Yes looking for wholesalers who aren't frauds..there's a million of them

And as far as just getting in contact with them...almost impossible,,,they are a corporate giant and protected by a thick communication veil...unless you have a computer problem getting in touch with them is very hard to do.

I want to make a little money...who doesn't.

I love the MacbookPros and think apple will eventually take out PC's, as users become more frustrated with microsoft's constant problems
