It seems there was some interest in the previous post about discounts on the original 1.6GHz MacBook Air ($1149.99).
Our affiliate partner MacMall has since notified us that they are now offering the original 1.8GHz MacBook Air with 64GB SSD drive for $1749.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate. The original price when this model was first introduced in January was near $3000.
The current price of the high end 1.86GHz MacBook Air is $2,499, but you get a larger SSD drive (128GB) and a faster graphics card.
MacRumors financially benefits from these sales, but this was also felt to be of genuine interest.
