    Heads up for peeps that ordered: 3 out of 4 of the new MBA's got a 5% discount, which is a good deal if you also escape tax.

    Before it was iffy versus Apple's educational discount (back to school deal), but this tips the scales.

    How do you get no tax? Amazon adds sales tax for my Texas location.

    I paid 1194 two weeks ago at amazon. I saw the 1139 price today. The filipino customer service person wud not give me the difference. I demanded to talk to a supervisor who was also over there. Same response . Her option was return the computer. What a moron. I then called back and demanded to speak to a cr in the us. He immediatly credited me the $55.00 to my amzn store card.

    Amzn must have texas facility. No tax where i live.

    btw, bestbuy is offering silver members 10% off, or $120, but you have to pay tax. bb also offers 18 months as opposed to twelve and a 45 day return policy for silver.

    OMFG, Amazon struck a deal with the Texas Comptroller to start collecting sales tax effective yesterday, July 1. MF. I buy from Amazon every other day.

    Is a coupon required or..? I know they're on sale now for everyone. Is there an additional 10% being offered?

    They do sell refurbs, but the mid-2012 ones haven't been out long enough to have available.

    bb does not sell refurbs. just open box items which cane be a good deal. usually 10 percent off or more. last year they also offered an additional $100 off. i picked up an open box 2011 mbp for 825 plus tax. just sold it for what i paid to get a 2012 base 13" mba. the mbp just wasn't portable enough. i love the mba. so light and faster than the mbp.:D
