Hello, i am thinking about buying a MBP 17" and am wondering what would be the best way to buy one, my options seem to be: 1. Buy from Apple Online Store/Retail Store 2. Buy From an online reseller e.g. Amazon.com ($150 rebate and no sales tax) <--Which online reseller is best? 3. Buy from an online reseller or Apple Store using a student discount <-- which reseller w/ student discount is best? 4. Buy a refurbished machine (i've heard these are sometimes better than new ones but just w/o the nice shiny MBP box. As you can see i have many choices here, my main question is which one is the cheapest. i'm not particular about it coming in a shiny MBP box, but it would not be too bad if a new MBP turns out to be the cheapest. Please give your info on your experience/knowledge as to which would be the best.
