    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.

    They didn't have any when I was there, but honestly for the price I got the machine, I didn't hesitate to buy. I use this computer in my house mostly (never outside) so the AG screen wasn't an issue.

    I got mine on sale at BB as well, but no student discount.

    Nope.

    They didn't even ask me for a Student ID. The guys just kinda brought the manager over for the numbers and he put in the discount himself.

    They really aren't supposed to do the student discount and the sale price. Count yourself very fortunate.

    Store managers at BB are desperate right now.
    And it couldn't happen to a nicer group of people.

    Here's a buying tip.
    If you need any GS services, accessories or accidental damage plans
    for the computer, make a low ball offer on the computer.
    They'll do anything to make that sale. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

    I'm not saying to get stuff you don't need, but if you can arrange your purchase with other items
    and the above mentioned S&A, managers will fall on their swords to do that sale.
    Even if you don't like BB, now is your chance to stick it to them.
