Sorry I couldn't report this sooner (not sure if the deal is still up). But I purchased my new 17" Pro (2500$ Retail Model) for 2150$ Before taxes at the Garden State Plaza BB in New Jersey. They had a sale for these computers @ 150$ off. I went into the store and showed them Apple does a 200$ Student Discount. Talking to the guy, he paged a floor manager and the manager said it was a GO. Im not sure if anyone else got this same experience but for 2150$, this was a GREAT deal. I obviously plan on purchasing AppleCare at a later date, just thought I would share if anybody was out there looking.
