    $2000 - $200 student discount = $1800

    Depends on you...

    Refurbished: less battery life, dgpu, 200 bucks less...

    New: battery life, weaker graphics...


    I would recommend you the new one... Or a refurbished 2013 Model

    I think Student discount on the Base is 100 not 200.
    The 2599 one has 200.
