I've been limping along with an old Dell notebook for years and had convinced myself a new 'ultrabook' PC was in my future, until I started researching the MBA. A couple visits to my local Apple reseller, an Apple store and BB to look at one first hand and I'm coming over from the darkside. Wow - machine! Anyway, looks like I'm going to have to purchase one via the Apple on-line store. Went by my local Apple store last night and it was a fook'in zoo. I would have to had waited 30 minutes just to see if they had what I wanted in stock. Looking for the 13" MBA, 8 ram, 128 ssd. Hoping I can use my wife's university staff position to get the education discount. Anybody use their spouses university ID to get the discount?? Thanks, Mark B.
