    Hello guys i am a newbie here. I just wanna ask for advice/suggestion because I’ve been calling lots of PMC branch since the 2nd week of august and they still don’t have stocks for MBP 2019 base model. Now i am still contemplating if it’ll be good to buy from sellers like AJT gadget world / bosjap shop / Jep’s house of gadgets but my main concern is if they really offer legit 1 yr apple warranty. So, should i just wait for the restock or nah? If nah, which seller do u recommend?

    the shops you're calling don't have stocks...

    I played with the PHL sit and delivery in QC should be mid-Sept which is only 2 weeks away anyway.

    (since it will be delivered to your place)
    You save on Gas, Parking, and time :)

    Not unless re-sellers can give a lot of freebies, I don't see any reason to buy any Apple product from a store.

    You can always deposit your cash back into your account. You’ll be using a credit card anyway to order online.

    BTB has stocks for 2019 MacBook Pro because I was there last weekend browsing over them. Try Greenhills.

    Then there’s i-Studio which has been kind enough to give discounts to PhilMUG members even for an iPhone case. Two thumbs up if you’re reading this. (y)(y)

    Of course, don’t take my word until you personally see for yourself.
