Yes, it is eligible for the ADC discount. The price of the base model MBA is $1619 with the ADC discount. Note quite as good as the $1599 price for a base model MBP ($400 off), but still not bad if you have a hardware credit.

The ADC discount is available.
About $200, the education discount is about $200 also.

Ok so I am still kind of new to the whole Apple "ADC Membership" stuff. And I was just wondering how it works? Do you have to pay a membership fee? Stuff like that. Thanks!

My ADC price on my MBA 1.8 SSD with iWork installed was $2,859.00 plus local taxes and any expedited shipping fees. It was delivered around 4:09PM Arizona time today, 6 Feb, as originally planned. ;)

A student membership costs $99 a year. If you buy the MBA using your education discout, be $100 cheaper.

Is it true

I spoke to an couple of Apple sales people at the apple store and they told me that I purchase a Mac from MacMall I would have to send it to them to get it worked on. So basically, if I took a Mac of any kind to the apple store, they would ask me to ship it to MacMall for service.

Is this true?

Absolutely wrong. Apple provides the warranty, not MacMall. There have been nurerous occasions when I bought an Apple item from someone other than Apple, then had them supported by Apple (often at the Apple store).

How does one get the education discount on this site? I can't find a link anywhere....

I am a student, so I could just buy direct from apple for $1699. Is there any real advantage to this macmall deal?

who cares

Who cares, probably just cheaper to order from amazon, and pay no tax. Can't wait for new MBP to come out though
