    My local best buy has a current gen 13" MacBook Air 128gb open box deal for $1170 after open box discount, $100 off open box coupon, and 7.75% tax.


    Pretty Luke warm deal right?

    does the one-year apple care start from the moment you purchase the open-box item? or did it already start when it was "First opened"?

    Not really sure....i keep waiting to see the catch. Cosmetically i looked it over and given the nature of the air, its not like someone can swap out components either. The instant on performance is just amazing, and its silent too.

    Not a good deal, I got a NIB 2011 13" base for $1249 less 3% instant rebate from Mac Connection (no tax, free shipping.) With 1% back on my CC it came out to $1200 shipped to my door.
