Geez, I've always used Futureshop and BestBuy online. I think pretty much all other electronics shops closed.

Hmmm... I see Bleeker in Ottawa has an online website, so they must be still open. I don't know what they're prices are like but I always considered them a high-end audio and video place.

A correction - shopbot, pricecanada (which is an ehmac affiliated site), canadapost shopping whatever it is, --these are all shopping search engines.

When you buy, you buy from the particular vendor whose price was advertised. So it isn't correct to say that there isn't a problem shipping from "there" (Shopbot) because shopbot has nothing to do with the purchase or the fulfillment of the order.

If you had a good experience with shipping, you would need to say what retailer it was.

SINC- I am not sure why you have jumped on the "its a spammer" wagon here. I see it as someone who used it and doesn't appreciate that it is already well known among online buyers. I don't see anything sinister about it.

One thing this thread revival has done for me is to reject using Shopbot EVER. If the new member promoting it thinks they have found new clients for their 'Bot" I suspect they would have been better off not kicking a sleeping dog, so to say.

Had someone not attempted to toss it down my throat, I might have tried it one day out of curiosity. Not now in any way shape or form. It is rejected the minute Google throws it at me and will continue to be so forever.

Thanks for that. I took a look back -- I tend to find electronics through their site (not necessarily just Apple) through Staples, NCIX and TigerDirect. The last one seems to be in the US but like I said, I never had worries about shipping to me (I'm in Toronto).

SINC, not sure why so aggressive on my post -- we've got the right to be bored and work and surf around forums right? I didn't notice the original posting date when I first responded, just wanted to give some input.

Happy shopping!

Actually shopbot.ca is a very quick and easy way to check for the best online prices being offered, it has been around for years and is completely legitimate I doubt very much the post was spam. I really think your presupposition is in error SINC.

Thanks! At home I've got an old 2007 macbook slowly running Snow Leopard -- time to bite the bullet and buy a new one I think. On the go an iPad 2 and iPhone 4, but at work (where I often spend much of my time here :p) I'm chained to a PC unfortunately!
