Really? Best Buy has had some amazing offers over the years and saved me money versus paying Apple's prices. Please tell the other forum members where you shop? Since some of us are suckers looking to save money.

That's a hefty deal right there for students! If I were still in school and even if I didn't need a new laptop, I'd be tempted to buy one with that much of a discount.

I hadn't realized Best Buy had been around this long - 50 years.
