    You might qualify for a student discount; if you have an alumni ID, it probably will be sufficient.

    They don't offer the upgraded harddrive in store. You have to order it online.

    This should probably be asked elsewhere, but why is everyone so insistent on applecare? Do you have to take your computers in to get fixed a lot? o_o I've always had a PC and have NEVER taken my computer in to get fixed by somebody.

    Yeah, don't buy it at the Applestore. Buy it online and save hundreds by discount and not paying tax. Also buy your Applecare off ebay and pay $130 with no tax instead of $350. They email you the registration number and you can activate it right away. Then either put all the money you saved in the bank or buy some fun accessories!

    Note you're Applecare will cost closer to what I said above, ttran88 has a 13" so his Applecare was cheaper. But ebay is the only way to go!

    I'm from Portugal and here the only desavantage of buying it in the store is that take longer to come. If i buy online only has 1 year of garanty and in the store(not an official apple store because ther's none here) i have 2 years of garanty. Plus the discount online and at the store its the same.

    If I'm correct, as long as you have Applecare those other guarantees don't matter. You can buy your Applecare off ebay because Applecare is worldwide. But You will know better than me how things work in your country.

    I find it hard to understand why you are having trouble spending an extra few hundred dollars when you are spending more than $1200 already. Dont forget that you have an year from the date of purchase to buy applecare. You dont need to buy it right away. Lloyd
