I just came from best buy with a shiny new 13" MacBook Air 1.8/4GB/256SSD. Ended up spending a total of about $1400.00. They have a silent promotion going on giving $100 off to students and a $100 gift card. Furthermore, the reduced the price of the Air to $1300 after discounts then charged me for the $100 gift card, thus reducing the tax. Ymmv! The Best Buy Manager was really cool, and actually was the one who told me about the $100.
