I know i can price match it to bestbuy and ill be able to get it probably today.. What should i do.. purchase it for 999$ or wait until the next one?

    You getting it depends on your computational needs and if that machine can satisfy those needs.

    And the other typical answer: Wait, if you can. Buy now, if you need now.

    Microcenter is selling it for $999. If you want it, get it. Just do it tax free. ;)

    Best Buy will not price match online. They only price match physical stores... they are also limited very much on apple products and any discounts that they can take.

    Source: I work there

    Also which macbook pro is it.. 9600m or 330m?

    So is Microcenter the cheapest for the MBP 13" 2.4 C2D? There's one about 1/2 hour from me. I had been thinking though of buying a refurb online from apple. If I use my Discover, I get 5% back.

    if you don't have a microcenter in your state.

    People forget that it only works if the place doesn't have a physical presence in your state.

    For example, I live in Seattle. Amazon is not tax free for me.

    Well then, sorry, it's not tax free (as I said, people forget that rule only works if the place isn't local to your state. I have to bite my tongue every time I hear some one recommend amazon cause it's tax free as I have to remember that for people in other states it is).

    Though if it were me, I'd buy from Microcenter anyways over Best Buy (but I have issues with Best Buy. I actually meant it when I told them 8 years ago I'd never spend another dime with them).

    In this case, you can't because a Microcenter is in your home state. If it weren't, you would be able to get it tax free if you ordered it from them online or by phone.

    honestly im thinking about going to bestbuy today and buying it but i wanted to know.... My current laptop isnt even a year old and the battery life is 2 hours fully charger!!!!... this computer isnt a bad computer except for the heat it produces and the computer works fine but i want to buy a new 1 but this laptop works fine its just that i want to buy a new one and my mom is giving me 500$ towards it so it wont be a bad deal for me.. and i dont really even think the new update coming out is going to be beneficial for me since im only going to be video chatting on it and doing school work and just going on the internet.. the only programs i would have would probably be itunes oovoo skype and microsoft office... so just tell me if you think for my uses the new update will or wont be necessary for what im going to use it for... thanks
