    That's the best deal you can find. I got 10% off in the store with my base model, thanks to some assistance in-store, but I still had to pay tax, bringing it up to a little over $960. With Amazon's one-day shipping to get it by Tuesday, that's $926, otherwise you can get it with free shipping, but who knows how long that's gonna take.

    Yes, and if you are a student, you can get free Amazon Prime which means you get free 2-day shipping or next day shipping for 3.99 on this. Its a great deal overall.

    Great deal on Macbook Air 11" on

    I just purchased the entry level macbook air 11" for $898 off Amazon this morning. I've been keeping tabs on Amazon because I know their prices fluctuate frequently this time of the year. Looked this morning and this is the lowest price I've seen, so I made the plunge.

    I did the math. Here in Idaho sales tax is 6%. So roughly $60 on a thousand dollar computer. Amazon is $100 less than retail. Additionally when I paid with my store card, I saved an additional $10. So I saved $170 over buying this computer at the apple store. Also, because I'm an Amazon prime member, I get two day shipping free. Could have opted for the $4 one day shipping, but that would have defeated the purpose of saving as much as possible. I don't know how much two day shipping costs on the Apple Store website, but that could be factored in as well.

    All in all I am very pleased with my find. I hope I am equally pleased with the computer.

    Tough choice... here. But, I already bought 13.3 inch for my mom. My current laptop works fine. I am waiting until OS lion comes out.
