    AWESOME Government Discounts!!
    Well I was on the Forums trying to find another Mac to buy, I wanted a MacBook Pro this time. So I found some good deals, I was just having problems trusting anyone to ship them out to me, considering I'm overseas right now as a DOD contractor. So I decided to go onto the Apple website and look at the refurbished ones they had.

    I was looking for a 17" Hi-Res model, and of course, they had them. So I chose the Fully upgraded 17" model they had, which before taxes and everything, the refurbished price was $2500. So, after looking around, I find out that apple does government employee discounts of 17%!!! I had to buy it, because I got both discounts, the refurbished one, and my government one.

    So at the end of this all, including overnight shipping, and my APO shipment, and remember I ordered the FULLY UPGRADED MacBook Pro, my final price was...ding, ding ding $ 2400.00!!!!

    I just wanted to share the awesome day I'm having so far...Now I just got to wait for it to get here lol

    Thanks Man!! It's always exciting when you know you have another Mac on the way!! My 4th Mac machine, but still as excited as ever!!

    The shipping wasn't to bad, overnight to the people that ship it to my APO was only like $28. But I got to pay the people to ship it to me APO, which is like $30 I believe.

    All in all, this is the best deal I have ever gotten!!

    (Also just ordered 4gigs of Corsair ram for it)
