    Just looked at the ads this morning and the Best Buy ad said $100-$200 off MacBook Pros until Wed. I haven't looked into it yet, but it might be a good deal for some who don't qualify for education pricing.

    Update: Just checked it out. $100 off 13", $150-$200 off 15", and $200 off 17".

    I think that is a decent discount for Best Buy. I think I am going to buy the 13" 2.53 Ghz for $1500 out the door.

    Bing Cashback

    If you're ordering online, don't forget to use Bing Cashback to get 5% off your purchase.

    I don't feel like explaining how it works, so I'll just post the link to their FAQs page: http://www.bing.com/shopping/pages/faq.aspx

    I'm thinking of getting that entry-level iMac myself. Their price is $50 less than Apple's education discount and with the 5% cashback from Bing, even with tax, it'd cost less than Amazon's current price (i.e., $1169 and no tax for most people). However, I think I'm going to wait just a couple days to mull over the potential purchase as well as see if any other deals come up from other retailers. 18 months of financing from Best Buy is pretty good too.

    You're better off getting it from Amazon, if you're not in a state that Amazon charges tax with :p

    Nice!

    If one was a student, could one double-up with the discount? The $2499 17" MBP would then become very affordable... :)

    From what I've heard you can't get the student discount at Best Buy.

    Over the summer you could, if you still can...that remains to be seen.

    Under any circumstance, wait for Black Friday and unless you have a gift card/want Reward Zone points, chances are MacMall, PowerMax or any of the other third-party online stores are going to have larger discounts on Black Friday.

    MacBook 2.26 for $799 after rebate

    Check out Microcenter if you are near a store.

    MacBook MC207LL/A 2.26GHz, 2 GB DDR3-1066 SDRAM, 250GB 5400 RPM, OSX10.6

    $999, but In Store Only is a $200 rebate via Visa Prepaid card, so net price is $799.
