    im going to buy a 15" PB at the apple store on tuesday. i dont want anything special besides the superdrive and the 128 meg video card, so will i end up walking out of the store with it? or are they going to have to order it (if they order it does the store get it quicker that if i just ordered it from the site?)?

    it;s the same as the internet and you still have to pay taxes on the internet so it doesnt matter pricewise for me.

    oh, cool.

    I'm owned with my year old ID. I gotta do it online. I'm banking on a 10% discount at the release party tomorrow. I hope...

    this was not my experience... I had to place my order online or over the phone to get the education discount (unless I wanted to visit the store in my university, which was a state away, at the time)
