    that just kind of suck, i know they are very generous in giving us a discount, but that just kinda sucks that they took $50 dollars off the price\
    Now Im stuck, wait 2 weeks and get 190 off with my friends employee discount or get it tomorrow and get 50 off...hmmm
    Do you guys agree?

    I bought a low-end macbook last month and had it replaced on the 29th. My 14 day return ended on the 13. When I looked at my receipt it says under Individual Educator: $20.90 wasn't I suppose to get $100 off since I'm a student? I also got a free I ipod touch with it and got the $209 rebate.

    it's 100 for the high end mb aluminum. I called apple they issued me a $100 credit. But low end MacBook aluminum was zero when I checked. I think this is a glitch

    College students also used to be able to get iPod discounts... Maybe Amazon will have a rebate like they do with the previous models. And free shipping+ no sales tax. That would make up for the other $50!

    Online stores do not assess sales tax unless they have a physical location in your home state.

    Apple has stores in all fifty states, so you're going to get taxed whether you go in-store on online.

    I actually dug out an old receipt of an iBook i had purchased back in 2005...indeed not only was it $999 before rebate and tax (yeah, apple did have a sub-$1000 notebook before today) but they only offered a $50 rebate on it.
