B&H has a particularly good price on the following configuration: i7 3.1, 256gb drive and 16gb memory. At B&H, it's $1,879, while the computer with the same specs on the Apple website is $1999. All the other macbooks on B&H"s website are only $10 or $20 less than the Apple price, so I don't know why the discount is so steep on this model (maybe a mistake?). At any rate, I just bought one. With the money I saved in tax on top of that, it seemed like a good deal.
