    Looks like May 31st is the last day to purchase a MacBook Pro 17" and get the $150 rebate. Has anyone seen another that doesn't expire today?

    I'm looking for the best deal, of course. I could get the educational discount through Apple.com, but with an Apple store in the state, they charge sales tax, killing the discount. With the $150 rebate (that is expiring) from Amazon.com, Club Mac and Mac Connection, the price is $2,644.00 (plus a free printer from the last two). Does this sound like the best price?

    I had an order with Amazon.com. I clicked on my own Amazon banner ad so that I'd get a referral fee (yes, that does work), but then I noticed their shipping date could put the arrival of the machine beyond the last postmark date of June 30th for the rebate. I emailed about this and got a canned (non)answer. I emailed again with no response. So I canceled that order. I also didn't want to wait until July to get it.

    Mac Connection says "In Stock"...but from what I'm reading that doesn't mean they're shipping now?

    Any comments would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Scott

    I'll assume you're pretty new to Macs (or at least to buying Macs at Amazon).

    When Amazon rebates on Macs "expire", a new one comes (usually) for the next time period. Just FYI.
