I bought a macbook pro on taobao. It was genuine and super good for the price with top configuration but 10k less than from the apple store. It was a display computer, battery charged 11 times. It looks brand new too, no scratches or anything. And it has 1T of memory. The only thing is it's an older model, 2015 version and apple care has expired. But the shop gives 1 year warranty and 15 days of returning. If you PM me I can send you the link of the shop.

Not I said the blind man.

 

When I bought my MacBook Air I just ordered it off the Apple Store (PRC).

TMall is also home to an official Apple Store.

 

Most everybody I know trusts these two sources.

Do you mean non official or fake Apple stores? I've seen stores called Apple that appear to sell Apple products.

I’ve been to two non official “ Apple” outlets in the Gangding district in GZ. Both times I was assisting Chinese friends recover their money after they purchased supposedly new iPhones. Turns out they were refurbished. I ran the serial no’s. Non official parts hmemory, screens). New boxes, accessories appeared to be, but were not Apple.

Do you have a Sunion store near you? They’re Apple authorized resellers. They have a number if Apple shops in Guangzhou. I’ve bought a couple of new iPhones from them over a few years. They’re legit

They have Imac pros using Windows 10, so ... figure it out from there.

 

Also Chinese who are smart don't buy from there

funny, you are asking nicely for information while on other posts you insult. Typical keyboard warrior. No wonder that you can only find a job in henan. Pathetic

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
