My university has it's own computer store which is a licensed reseller of apple products has everything is priced at educational prices. I called them up and asked them about the black macbook, which is priced at $1399, to see if they would still charge sales tax on it if I use my university student account to pay for it. The rep said that there's no way around the sales tax but that there might be some discounts coming early next week for the black macbook and 15" macbook pro to help offset the sales tax. I asked him if it's still going to be on the same model and he says he thinks so. He doesn't know how much the discount will be but he said that he will e-mail me once he hears more. Has anyone heard rumors of anything going on next week? Is it possible for college and universities to offer mac products below the apple educational discount allows? My school tries to suck every single dollar from the students so hopefully this is Apple lowering the MSRP prices.
