I've always had good experiences with ClubMac, Outpost, and Mac Connection. How about ordering straight from Apple?

I've ordered from Apple store (repeatedly), MacMall, MacWharehouse, and ClubMac. I've had good experiences with all of them actually. The prices aren't that much different, but with the resellers, you usually get more memory or a scanner or some piece of free software (that's usually really out of date and won't run on the new machine anyway - Master of Orion anyone?)

I think the Apple Store charges sales tax no matter where you live whereas the others don't. The resellers also tend to charge alot for shipping. MacMall quoted me $35 for fedex 2day for an iBook. I checked the shipping costs at Apple and it was $15. <img src="graemlins/surprised.gif" border="0" alt="[Surprised]" />

I've had good experience with smalldog.com. Also look for specials on dealmac.com which points you to resellers.

Happy hunting.
