I would just like to lay out the prices for Apple appliances in Thailand. It was very interesting to compare whether it is cheaper than in Moscow or not, otherwise everyone often talks about the cheapness of technology (and not only epl) in Thailand, but I see that this is not entirely true when compared with Moscow. Our prices are often better than in Tai, or plus or minus the same. In particular, photographic equipment in Moscow is cheaper, while Apple products in Tae are cheaper only due to Vat Refund. Although it's still looking at what to compare, you can still buy gray equipment from us.

VAT Refund (Vat Refund)
When buying an Apple in Thailand, or rather, even when comparing prices, it is important to take into account such a moment - you can return 7% VAT (VAT) on the cost when leaving Thailand.Therefore, you need to deduct 7% from all price tags. The main thing is not to forget in the store to take a piece of paper for the return of Vat and then arrange all this at the airport (you need to additionally lay down the time and arrive early for registration).
One has only to take into account that you need to buy equipment no more than 2 months before leaving the country, otherwise this tax refund counter will not work. It is also worth knowing that in stores, Vat refund paper is issued only for goods worth more than 2,000 baht, and at the airport, money is issued only if your checks total more than 5,000 baht..

Macbook Pro Price in Thailand
I never thought, but I also became interested in Apple products, and in particular macbookomi. I still do not like iPhones with iPads, but MacBook is the most it. It can be considered as a main computer, and for several years and without losing the speed of work. Tired that Windows is constantly slowing down, and often only restarting helps. Holivars reign on the forums that it is better than Apple or everything else, but IMHO it's easier to buy it once and try it. You can always sell later, if you don’t like it, they don’t drop much in price. I am also personally glad that the monitor (Retina) will be more suitable for working with photos and in general on a trip, where you will not take a large monitor. Even if the double resolution does not increase the diagonal, it is much more convenient to work with it at the same dimensions.
In recent Macbooks, nothing can be configured at extra cost, added memory, or changed the processor as it once did. The choice will be only ready-made and available modifications. All of them are on the official website..
You can also order a keyboard with only English letters (without Thai), but you will need to place an order on the website and wait about 3 weeks until it is brought to the store. At least that's what they told me in the store.
Macbook Air Price in Thailand
For the Macbook Air, all of the above is true in terms of configuration changes and an English keyboard. The situation is exactly the same.
IPad price in Thailand
There are many options for iPads, so let it be only on the iPad 4 mini in its various modifications..

Where to buy Apple in Thailand
You can buy Apple in Thailand in almost any major city in the official store, where you can monitor all prices, both in Tai and other countries, and the prices will be the same everywhere and the same as on the website. If the store is not official, then there may be other prices and it will be possible to bargain, as well as to replace something on the spot in the laptop configuration, for example, hard or memory (in old macs). It is not worth pretending to reduce the price lower than the official one, but you can get some accessories, such as a bag or a mouse, in the appendage. In Bangkok, people usually stock up on appliances in the Pantip Plaza shopping center, something like a humpback in Moscow. You can also buy used equipment there..
The list of stores by city can be found here - locate.apple.com/th/en/, only on the map the stores are shown not at all where they are. Hmm, jambs, however, and Apple 🙂
