    For comparison, last week Microcenter was offering the faster 2.3GHz with the antiglare high-res screen ($150 upgrade) for the same price.

    Doesn't seem like a good price to me, I think you can do better for that particular model.

    Yea, and there was a 2.2ghz + 1gb 6750 for $1499 too, either way those prices are pre-tax (B&M!) and comparing online that makes them ~$1630 and ~$1750 respectively.

    I dunno, still on the fence about this myself XD

    Looks like a pretty good deal. I bought a 2009 MB($799) and 2010 13" MBP ($999) from Microcenter and got a great deal - my Microcenter in northern NJ only charges 3% sales tax but that is because it is in a so-called war zone so the state lets stores charge 50% of state tax to help business
