    The baseline MacBook for $1100, that is unless they have a refreshed MacBook.

    $999 with student discount on the base macbook if you're a student.

    If you can't get a student or government discount, then ask for the refreshed units. Basically it is a return, but with a full warranty. Everytime I have asked, the prices were never as good as refurbs or the education discount, but close.

    I know you said store, but I think Amazon has a rebate of some sort, plus no tax if you don't live in one of their distribution states.

    Good luck.

    You can do the education discount at a store (only Apple store, CompUSA or Best Buy don't honor the apple discount for students). You need your college/univ ID though (or some other kind of prove you're actually a student/faculty member).


    EDIT: Ooops, It seems I was mistaken. Free iPod offer ends September 16th, which means, it's not over yet.

    Yes. again, you need to provide some sort of prove you're actually a student (Higher Education only, no high school).

    You will most likely have to pay for the ipod upfront first. It's free only after a mail-in rebate.

    There are two states where it's an instant rebate by Law. I think that one of them is Connecticut, but I forget the other one.
