    Not a chance, unless it's used or damaged.

    online somewhere. Ebay or craigslist. Have found one for $630 on ebay but I'm sure it'll get bidded up.

    Damn... :(

    Not likely at that price unless you get a shady deal

    What makes you think you can get one at that price when new ones start at $999, education discount starts at $949 and refurbished units start around $849?

    Im in nyc. Should I go talk to a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy who robbed some guys? I'm pretty close to the hood, I wonder how often these thugs steal laptops...

    Lol idk just being hopeful. The internet is vast, maybe there's someone out there who doesn't know at what price to resell apple laptops.

    Meh I'll keep a look out come mid march...

    The difference between what you want to pay and a new one is $350, which is about 3 weeks of part-time work (20 hours/wk) at minimum wage, after taxes. Does that spark any ideas?

    Sorry, that's the way life works. You can't always get what you want, just because you want it. If you want the MBA, earn it!

    The price is the price. Not going to be easy to find something marked down 35%

    That just means you don't want it enough - so don't buy it then. It's a free country.

    I usually get what I want. Come next month maybe the price of current airs will go down amid rumors of sandy bridge upgrades. I think I can make it happen. I'll bump this thread when I do. :D

    this could be the start of you not getting what you want ... late 2010 MBAs for $650 will not be seen until 2012 :cool:

    If someone else out there is willing to pay her $800 for it, why on earth would she sell it to anyone for $650? Doesn't make sense to me at all!

    Thanks.
    Lol I hate you!

    Look I didn't want to offend anyone. I'm just not willing to pay that much for it because I don’t really need it. Just wanted something light for school.

    it's $850 on the refurb store.

    knock off a convenience store for the remaining $200.

    She's kind of a ditz. I'm still hoping to convince her out of it maybe when the new pros come out. We almost hooked up at a party a few weeks ago so maybe I can cloud her judgment somehow :cool:
