Well, I was planning on waiting untill snow lepord, but my Hp Pavilion Dv8000t is about ready to die, so I need a replacement for it. I am a student at a community college that is listed in the online Education store. But, I have herd that you can pay $99 and get a % discount off one laptop. Is it 20%? 25%? 5%? I herd it varies by product. And which would be cheaper to get this laptop. 17 inch Macbook Pro. 2.93Ghz processor 4 gigs of ram the Anti-Glare screen The $99 printer. (Canon PIXMA iP4600 Photo Printer) (It should be free, there is a $100 rebate thing) And apple Care.
