I always get my RAM from Crucial.com... never had any issues. Fair prices as wellI was able to get one.
I got it for a total of $1,049, which is $150 off of the regular retail price plus the fact that Amazon doesn't charge tax (9.75% here in CA).
I didn't technically buy it during the Lightning Sale, but after I saw that it sold out in zero seconds (it literally went from "Sale starting in...." to "Sold Out" right away), I figured it couldn't hurt to call Amazon. So I called them, did some talking, and yadda yadda yadda, got the $1,049 price.
Currently, Amazon has the MBP on sale for $1,114. Yesterday it was on sale for $1,068. I am guessing that after the holidays, it will go back up to the regular $1,199 price.
Alternatively, I could have bought it at my school store for $1,049+tax=$1,151, which is what I was planning on doing.
Now I can use that extra $100 towards a RAM upgrade...... anyone have any suggestions of where to buy?
$1,068 is not the usual price on MacMall. It's on sale right now, just like on every other major Apple re-seller's site.Ah, I see.
At my local Fry's it's usually available for that price though.
On MacMall, it's 1068. You really shouldn't be scoffing about 20 bucks if you're spending this much on a computer. 100 bucks, I understand.
What I mean is that people on Amazon were starting threads complaining that the deal ended in less than a minute, and they weren't able to get it.$1,068 is not the usual price on MacMall. It's on sale right now, just like on every other major Apple re-seller's site.
Also, Fry's regular retail price for this MBP is $1,199.
There's this thing called Black Friday going on.....
Who's scoffing over 20 bucks?
Actually, the deal ended in zero seconds. There wasn't even an opportunity to click "Add To Cart". I figure that they had 1 or 2 at that sale price for the whole world. That is why I called Amazon, spoke with a rep, and got that price anyway.What I mean is that people on Amazon were starting threads complaining that the deal ended in less than a minute, and they weren't able to get it.
Yessir, I do know it's Black Friday.
Also, last week, when I visited two local Frys' here in the Bay Area, both of them were selling it for $1079 with a free printer, and so and so forth.
Ah, good job on the deal again.Actually, the deal ended in zero seconds. There wasn't even an opportunity to click "Add To Cart". I figure that they had 1 or 2 at that sale price for the whole world. That is why I called Amazon, spoke with a rep, and got that price anyway.
Fry's website lists that MBP at $1,199. I doubt that it was discounted to $1,079 on a regular day. Perhaps you misread the price? Also remember, that on top of the $1,079, you would have to pay sales tax. Here in CA that would be an additional $105.
That's awesome! I'm glad others are able to get this deal too.And it's on sale again. $1049!!!! Gonna purchase it.
I don't think there is $6.99 shipping. I think he meant that he paid $6.99 more than he was already paying for shipping to have Saturday delivery. I could be wrong though.........I ordered one today with free shipping says it wont even ship till dec 2 then 5-9 days after that didnt see anything about 6.99 shipping. guess ill have a long wait.
Quite a lot of Macs in your signature there!think this is their regular price, or maybe down $10?
2.53 is $1299AR
im in CA too, buy all my macs from them.
