    Getting my mom a MBP 13 for mothers day, is Microcenter the cheapest? I already used my student discount once, and developers once (imac for family, and my brothers 17MBP)

    I'm almost 100% getting the 13inch since she does nothing that needs the power and size of the 15"

    microcenter is 1200 after tax, with 100 dollar mail in. so 1100 after rebate

    Refurbs from Apple are the cheapest I think.

    Have fun with them.... :noes:

    Thanks for the help I might go ahead and save myself a few, and go ahead and get that refurb 13"

    or I could get an even nicer one straight from apple for 1200, and I can try to see if I can get them to accept my summer school community college .EDU email. for 1100+tax so 1200 OTD... I think the refurb should suffice though, I need that 200 bucks :rofl:

    I'm about to go to the base exchange and see if they got the new MBP's. Might end up getting the 13" too.
