Hey guys i'm thinking of making the switch to OS X, i'm already familiar with the OS and stuff but I had to big questions before going out and buying a 13" Macbook Pro (2011)

1. Besides a student discount is there any other discounts I can get my hands on to make the purchase a bit less expensive?


2. I know that Steam is on Mac now which is good cause i love TF2 and L4D but i noticed that the 13" has Intel Graphics 3000. Is this a major problem I don't expect much gaming besides the 2 games mentioned above.

Besides that i'm really looking forward to making the switch to Mac next week
QUOTE Thanks

the intel graphics aren't great but not bad. in every other apsect that laptop is amazing.

as for discounts... you can look around for refurbished, but theyll be few and far between right now.
