that is a pretty good price i would say... cause if you look at the student price in the states, it's 1799 for your base model... u added ram and apple care, so that's a good price...

Yes thats a good deal. The base MacBook Pro is $1999. add the extra RAM and apple care and you're at $2474 before tax. You definately save some scratch!

Maybe its just me, but isn't that the sort of question you should ask before you buy something?

Lol, thanks. Yea I know I should of asked before, but I didn't find a better deal, plus my schools return policy is really good, so I can always return it if there is a better price out there.

I guess I'm asking if anyone knows of a better price than the one I got.

Also, what do you guys think is the best P2P program?

Going to answer my own question (I think) it doesn't look that good as a spanking new with a similar spec is not that much more, I'm now assuming the 41% is from the ORIGINAL price not the price you could get one for now, does that make sense?
