    You don't know the prices very well, do you. :hsugh:

    The $1599 MacBook with edu discount is $1499...

    The developer discount is $1439 + 99 developer fee



    But Johnny Chimpo, I am surprised that they allowed you to double dip the black friday deal with the education deal. Pretty cool

    Sorry, I don't mean education, I mean corporate. You said you got $100 for black friday and $100 for corporate discount

    Our corp discount is pretty good. It's something like ~8% off everything. Not quite as good as the edu discount but it still doesn't suck.

    I just got the shipping notice, it'll be here on Tuesday. :wiggle:

    Now, the question is: Parallels or VMWare Fusion?

    you dont even need an edu address, pretty much anyone can get one online.

    and its hard to believe you dont know any students / teachers / anyone involved in the education system at all to get that discount :wavey:

    I guess you missed the part where my discount was better than the edu discount anyway. So, what you're really saying is:

    "You could have gotten less money off by going with the edu discount, so why did your dumbass go for more savings. You fail at throwing money away. lulz"

    Let's simplify:
    Regular price: $1599
    Edu discount price: $1499
    Black Friday price $1498
    I paid $1402

    Now please move on from the stupid edu discount thing. :ugh:

    Beware for the common problems that come with the rev As:
    - Possible dead pixels as always
    - Loose battery cover
    - Slanted keys
    - Dust behind the LCD

    if you get any problem at all... make sure you return that shit ASAP for a new one. Unless you don't care, but for such an expensive product I'd demand perfection for at least a few months :hsugh:
