    I would say either refurbished or student discount, basically, go in to the Apple Store with a student with a card to show they are a student and you get 6% off.

    OR wait until the schools start a new term when they have a deal going off, a free ipod nano and printer, then you can sell the printer and Ipod to get a bit back.

    it's the long road, but you could do what i did:

    1. own or know someone who owns a small business (or self employed) who makes lots of money and is taxed accordingly.
    2. buy refurbished as a business expense.
    3. remit the tax.
    4. reduce your taxable income.

    after the taxes are done i will have spent about $650 CAD for the 2.4GHz MacBook (which costs $1449 CAD before taxes for the refurbished model).

    I think thats something not to say as it incites a felony or federal class offense here in the US. We've learned not to mess with the Internal Rape Service, I mean... Revenue

    I always referred to them as Infernal Revenue Service.
