well I'm thinking about ordering my macbook off amazon.com mainly because of the fact that there is no california sales tax and computer recycling fee which tacks on $92.03 to my order directly from apple :/ The only problem is I'm afraid that if i do so I might not get it buy june 30th the day I leave for vacation an entire week. I noticed that amazon says ships Usually ships in 1 to 2 weeks. But one added benifit of ordering off amazon is the $100 rebate they are curently offering. If i order from apple using my student discount my total purchase price is $1202.03 USD - white 1.83ghz macbook - apple mini-dvi to dvi adapter - apple usb modem est ship 1-5 buisness days ordering from amazon it comes to $1,167.76 USD + $100 mail in rebate marking the total cost $1,000.76 - white 1.83ghz macbook - apple mini-dvi to dvi adapter - apple usb modem est ship 5-9 business days asumed added ontop of the other ship wait? Any thoughts of what i should do since i need it by june 30th? also if i buy from amazon does it still include the 1 year warrenty from apple? I may purchase apple care later on budget allowing.
