nice that they are continuing this trend, this means sub 1,000$ for the MBP base config. I am hoping they get a 1GB memory config in stock, that one I will buy from them.

No tax, no shipping charges, 100$ off, cannot be beat.

No...the title is misleading because it's for a MacBook - not a MacBook Pro.

A MacBook Pro for under a 1000 - now that would be something to cheer about :D

uh, I guess. It is a pre-order, but they are still "selling" them nonetheless. Not sure when they will ship; the imacs shipped in about five days after the preorder started.

Everyone else in the marketplace is just a "pre-order" too. Trust me, nobody has actual stock yet other than the apple stores and apple.com. And they are at 3-5+ days to ship.

I can wait a few days to save 200$+, I guess others might not want to wait a week.

yes, updated title, sorry.

Amazon has, however, been selling the MBP as well for 100$+ off for more than a couple of months, so no misinformation there. But, indeed not what I had meant to communicate.

The 1.83 GHz model is actually in stock at Amazon currently. The 2.0 GHz in both white and black are pre-orders though. I've ordered Macs from Amazon before and have had nothing but excellent service. I've always received my rebate from them without any hassles as well.

rebates

yes, the rebates come pretty darn quick too,

I bought an intelmac, and had the rebate I think the last week of march, so about seven weeks total.

150$ off.

Seven weeks is quick for you? I mean they made the rebate application very easy, no cutting the box or mailing anyhing, so I liked it, but I did not think seven weeks was quick.

In any case, I'd do it again for $150.

Ever filled out a rebate before? Six months is not unusual...if they don't forget to send it, it doesn't get lost in the mail, or they find some way to disqualify you.

Seven weeks is pretty good.

Not many, maybe about 6 times before.

I had a no show from Microsoft once, but the rest of the time, they all arrived in about 2 months, so 7 weeks is about average for me. As the whole application for Amazon's rebate is in electronic domain, they don't have any excuse to delay the issuing of the check. No need for anybody to enter your name and address to a computer, no need to check if all the serial numbers check out... A server does everyhing automatically, anything more than 2 weeks is just using my money interest free.

considering the time frame and amount, and the nearly 3K in rebates over the past five years, I would put the seven weeks from submission to receipt of this amazon rebate one of the fastest. Honestly, I cannot think on one that was faster, except maybe the microsoft office 50$ rebate, which MIGHT have been five to six weeks.

I can tie up 150$ in savings, (I mean, it would just go directly to apple anyway, right) for seven weeks to get it back.

I bought the 1.83MBP from Amazon, their online rebates are SOOO easy. 2 days ago it said they're writing a check or mailed it or what. Took 4.5 weeks - however it says now to wait up to 30 days for it to arrive?
