Looks like Amazon price matched Best Buy.

No tax either :eek::eek:

I also jumped on the $199 PS3 deal, so I think I'm practically all set for Xmas :D

edit: getting PM'd about PS3. Link:

i'm interested how the performance of the 11" air (after upgrading the RAM) would compare to my 2008 MacBook unibody (no firewire model) which is a 2.4GHZ C2D with GeForce 9400M 256MB gfx, 8GB RAM, and a 250GB 5400rpm HD.

i'm guessing the air has 1 RAM slot so it would be really expensive to upgrade it to 8GB. but other than that, how would the performance of the 1.6GHz i5 and the Intel 3000 gfx compare to the above?

edit: oops, the MBA ram really isn't upgradeable. nevermind then!

BestBuy still has it for that price

$898 now? Still cheaper than BB after tax for me, but it depends on whether you live in a high or low tax state.
