    Decided on the MBA 13.3", 4GB, 256GB SSD.
    Where can I get the best price?
    I am eligible for a student discount.
    Thanks

    Have you checked the Refurbished section on the Apple website? I always buy refurb products from there and have saved hundreds of dollars.

    student discount is weak imo
    its better to go to a reseller and haggle abit.
    I managed to get $149 off (10%) by haggling abit here and there

    Are you in UK or US? I am a UK student, and I'm going to buy my air tomorrow. It's 14% off for uni students.

    So for me, I have gone for the 13" 128GB 4GB, should be £1099, but will cost me about £945. Which I think is pretty good. Don't need the extra GB because my iMac will handle all the heavy stuff. Can't wait for it to come :D

    I am in the U.S.
    "Children", care to give name of reseller that will haggle for 10% off?
    I called B&H and they would not haggle at all off their price which is $1499.
    Amazon has it for $1498.
    13" 1.7 4gb, 256 SSD

    I always go with Amazon. With free shipping and no sales tax, their price is always lowest "out the door." Just ordered the 11" 4/128 for 1138...

    Try for an open box at best buy. Great bargains. I just got an early mbp base 13" for $800. :)

    MacMall has a special promo that they do with Apple Insider. From the website:
    I have no experience with MacMall. Personally, the savings are so slight in this scenario ($25) that I'd stick with Apple and the EDU discount. (If you're looking into MacMall as a serious option, you should make sure they don't charge shipping. It would likely negate any savings; Apple ships free.)
