    Hi First of I want to say hi and new to the MacRumors community:).

    Second Im in the market for a Macbook pro 13 2009 version in and I am hitting the wall because i missed out on the deal which i could have gotten and Free Ipod touch, printer plus the education discount. But Now I need a place where I could get it for $1000 (new or even refurbished)anywhere online???? I would prefer to buy 2009 version macbook pro and making the purchase in 2 weeks. So if anyone can point out where or what site. I tried craigslist and ebay but those people still pretty much expensive and not much different than buying in the applestore.

    So if you guys are nice to point me out where or when then ill be more than appeciated. Thanks

    Keep an eye on the the refurbished store on apple's site. They sell certified macs in mint condition with full warranty and at a considerable discount.

    If you are in the UK, then see if any of your friends are flying soon as every airport has a Dixon's Tax free, giving you a 15% discount on your new mac.

    Well Apple is rumored to introduce newly redesigned macbooks soon and are supposed to start below their current price of $999.

    The new ones have supposedly better screens, better battery, firewire...and if you get the 2.53 version, twice the RAM too. That's about it though. $600 (2.53) is a lot to pay for those 4 things, but $200 for the 2.26 would probably be a better deal just for the better screen and battery IMO.
