    Went to university's bookstore, checked out the macbook air 11, and love it.

    however, i do not need a macbook air right now

    Should i just wait until black friday? Do you guys think it'll be likely that they'll discount the macbook air 11 on black friday despite them selling like hot cakes?

    I can't imagine them knocking over $30. off it, for BF. If anything. They don't have any need to... especially not in it's first year.

    Your best bet on Black Friday would be a very small discount, or maybe some special financing through a store like Best Buy.

    Nothing major.....I'd get it now and enjoy it for a full month!

    You already get discounts for being a student. You won't get both B/f and Student discount on that day. It is also very unlikely that apple will put 11.6 inch on discount because it is selling very well. For 13.3 inch, maybe. But regardless of what it is, EDU discount should be already available for MBA.

    Check it out on MacMall. There is $20~40 instant discount plus no tax. Combining 2% MrRebate cashback you save almost $100 more than student discount.

    MacMall do let you customize as well

    Edit: MacConnection also comes with same discount and cashback

    I live in CA and they were going to charge me tax for the macbook air. maybe only in certain states do they not charge tax?

    CA charges tax for all incoming shipments from within and out of state.

    I guess the best alternative then is amazon, since they dont charge tax? Or is there another website that does not charge sales tax to CA residents?

    dumb question...

    if you buy from MacMall, can you still go to Apple stores for service?

    Sure -- no different than if you purchased at the Apple Store.

    If you order today, UPS might deliver by black Friday, or maybe Easter next year.

    Mac Connection. they don't charge tax for California residences and shipping is free. They have some deals going on right now for the Macbooks.
