You can get the best deals here in the USA on various Electronics Apple products such as iPhone, iPad, Macbook, Apple Watch, and other electronics especially on black Friday when almost every store is giving huge discounts.

Just to take care of the amount you can take in your luggage as there is a limit of the total worth of your products you can carry to India. Especially the electronics you should unpack them and keep them in carry-on bags and show that those are your personal items and not for selling.

You can carry 2 laptops without a problem but if there are more then you are in trouble.

In that case, you have to assure the authorities that the second laptop is for office use.
