    First of all: Hi, everyone! This is my first post on MacRumors. I am a regular PC user and after going to an Apple store and having a blast with the Macbook I want to buy one now.

    My main question is: should I buy online or in-store? I know that you have to pay for tax in both situations. Can I get the educational discount in-store? Can I get the $100 printer rebate in store? I'm mainly looking for the best deal for a brand new Macbook. I'm wondering this because I want it as soon as possible (so obviously in-store is best for that) but I also want to save.

    Thanks,
    Q

    You should be able to get both... ed discount and printer rebate... in store

    That said... the best deal may be somewhere like Amazon.com

    But I am with you... I like to buy in the store and carry it home :eek:
