If you're a student, you can get it for around 2181 before tax (my taxes are 7%, so it comes out to around 2333.67).

You could always try buying it at MacMall or MacConnection to save on the tax if you're not eligible for a student discount.

Yeah, when you buy a macbook air you are not buying it for it's computing power. So unless you're super mobile (or have to look super sexy) it's probably not worth it.
