The discount has been $50 for the $799-1099 price range for some time. If you REALLY want to save on a MacBook get it off of Amazon right now. No taxes and a better rebate beat the educational price. At least until Apple has a summer mail-in rebate. I got an additional $100 last year.Jschultz said:I'm just wishing it was $999, or at least $949. I really didn't want to pay as much as they're asking, even though it's fully worth it.
Anyone know how long it takes for the EDU discount to drop some more?
I should test this out. Sadly, I won't be able to until at least Friday.willgr said:I bought mine in one of the local Apple stores (around Dallas, TX) and paid $999 for the base MacBook with educational discount.
I did notice that the web site was $50 higher.
Anybody else have a similar experience buying locally??
