    Whoa, that's even cheaper than the student discount version ($249). Did it apply successfully to your machine when you check it on Apple's website?

    B&H is solid. I love dealing with them. Got an AppleCare from them as well.

    Wow, well, just wow. I'm well early in my 14 days, I may have to "return" my MBP and get a BTO 2.5 with no AppleCare, then I'll get the AppleCare via B&H.

    I've always had excellent luck with B&H (just bought a nice new DSLR rig early this month from them, actually), so this is great news.

    Thanks again!

    I have to say that is the cheapest way to go!
    Or be like me and buy a new MBP at J&R and buy AppleCare at B&H!
    I got like 300 bucks off my new MBP from JR and like 100 off for my Applecare :)

    LOL, well I almost did a similar route, but we just recently set up a enterprise/business account with Apple and being the guy at work who promotes it, I figured I'd start building a good relationship with our new rep by buying the MBP there. Still got a very good price on it, not that good, but very good.

    Now AppleCare, I'm all about getting that somewhere else as the small amount won't make much of a dent in our total spend.

    All that said, when I cave and get a MBA, I'll be all over the super discounts :)

    I'm tempted to skip buying applecare for my MBP 15. I'm coming up on a year. I've bought it for all my other machines. pretty much guarantees that if I don't buy it now, this MBP will take a crap.
