    Well I've heard that Amazon is doing a deal for 20% off a laptop when you buy a Kindle. I calculated the cost for a MacBook Pro 15in and it is only $1354! I've been in love with the 15in and I just bought a 13in from apple.com a few days ago. I am still under the 14 day return policy and I could live without a laptop for 2 weeks at most. Should I return my current Mac and get the 15? 13 is beginning to seem a bit small.. but I don't know what to do.. Thanks for the help.

    One last question; can I use the offer on refurbished models from third party sellers?

    Return it.

    Factor in the price of a kindle (which you can sell on for prob $50 loss)

    You want a 15... Get a 15. It's cheap as hell right now. I ordered a base 13 MBA for 990 but I'm thinking of changing it to a 15. Lol I keep flip flopping.

    Do you know if the base model 15" 2.2 qualifies?

    Also, do you know when the promotion ends?

    Yeah. This deal was awesome. I found out about this deal on Friday. Went to bestbuy at my lunch break to snag a kindle with special offers for 114+tax. Got the code and ordered the base 2.2 quad for 1650 later that afternoon. Added one day shipping for the extra 4-5 dollars since I am an amazon prime member. I got my mbp the next day at 9 in the morning.

    Does your keyboard have the Mission Control symbol or Spaces Symbol?

    If you spent $1199+tax on the 13" MBP, than by all means go for a $1354 15".
    I got a $909 13" MBP via the Kindle promotion, so the +$445 walk up to a 15" was much harder to justify. Luckily I already had the Kindle with special offers.
