For those of you students, rather than ordering the 2.6/512/8 base model at $2599, ordering the 2.3/256 and upgrading to the 2.6/512 comes out to be a bit cheaper.

In fact if you added the 16GB RAM you're looking at $2719 vs $2779.

Good info. Looks like they removed the option to do this now though. Maybe it'll return after they remove the discrepancy.

Just a little detail I noticed. The US Apple store has "Add" or "Subtract" next to the price difference in square brackets, whereas the UK store uses + and - :p

That's only because you cached the website before they took it down. Any new visitors to the store won't be able to upgrade. There was a 2-3 minute window when this glitch occurred. Unless you got in then, no dice.

Emptied cache, restarted, wait 30 mins too. Still available. I'm sure they'll have it down soon I guess, but for now I can go through the whole process start to finish.
