Yes, it is eligible for the ADC discount. The price of the base model MBA is $1619 with the ADC discount. Note quite as good as the $1599 price for a base model MBP ($400 off), but still not bad if you have a hardware credit.

The ADC discount is available.
About $200, the education discount is about $200 also.

Ok so I am still kind of new to the whole Apple "ADC Membership" stuff. And I was just wondering how it works? Do you have to pay a membership fee? Stuff like that. Thanks!

My ADC price on my MBA 1.8 SSD with iWork installed was $2,859.00 plus local taxes and any expedited shipping fees. It was delivered around 4:09PM Arizona time today, 6 Feb, as originally planned. ;)

A student membership costs $99 a year. If you buy the MBA using your education discout, be $100 cheaper.

I spoke to an couple of Apple sales people at the apple store and they told me that I purchase a Mac from MacMall I would have to send it to them to get it worked on. So basically, if I took a Mac of any kind to the apple store, they would ask me to ship it to MacMall for service.

Is this true?

Absolutely wrong. Apple provides the warranty, not MacMall. There have been nurerous occasions when I bought an Apple item from someone other than Apple, then had them supported by Apple (often at the Apple store).

How does one get the education discount on this site? I can't find a link anywhere....

I am a student, so I could just buy direct from apple for $1699. Is there any real advantage to this macmall deal?

After you "Add to cart"

See screenshot: "Instant Discount"

If you don't see it, "Proceed to checkout" and it should appear before you have to actually checkout.

Hey Arn,

No Tax, Rebate and Discount. :(

Too bad about California buyers though...they charge sales tax. Yup. :( I was excited until I read the vendor name. Sigh. Tax still kills the deal and I'm wary of rebates. Ah well...

Still pretty neat that MRers are offered the discount. :)

God help me when my turns up :o Nah, I'd rather purchase via Apple in a tax-free state (and with qualified discounts) as I have unused Apple GCs. Since my stuff's not selling, I'll likely eat it up with the CC first. :(

When filing Virginia taxes, you have to pay taxes for any goods purchased online or in other states that have not had a VA sales tax applied. So really, there is no difference between Amazon and MacMall, only MacMall makes it easier in that they just do it for me rather than dealing with it when I file my taxes.

Of course you could not declare it, but that gets into another discussion... Other states may be different, but I suspect some of you may be in the same boat and not realize it.

If you're getting benefits from this it's wrong to advertise when Demi's pay for ad-free content.

where was it? top of the front page? if so, that was just an oversight... but even if I had thought about it I may have thought it was of enough interest to post there. but your objection has been noted :)

Its rare for new Apple products to be discounted any amount so this was a truly special deal.

I don't think anyone is allowed to sell for MORE than apple stated retail, just as nobody is allowed to sell for less than retail, minus a 3% sales commission.
