Wanting to buy one of the new MBP's with a Hi-res Glossy screen.. can anyone point in the right direction that has pricing similar to that of Toshcomputers?
I realize i'm likely to hit a dead end with this, since Tosh offer GST free orders, but I thought its worth a shot.

FYI: 3,350 is my limit, since thats what its going to cost (there abouts) from Tosh.

I was looking at the US, however there doesn't seen to be any point since it ends up being around 3,700 anyways.


Any ideas would be great.

Find yourself a Uni student, with Apple education discount you can pick one up for $3661.00 (with hi-res glossy screen bto) or $3499.00 with standard glossy screen. Prices including GST.

firefuze: Find yourself a Uni student, with Apple education discount you can pick one up for $3661.00 (with hi-res glossy screen bto) or $3499.00 with standard glossy screen. directly from Apple.


Thanks for you reply..

Already looked at that and unfortunately, still quite expensive.


I may have worked it out with Jens from Toshcomputers - I just may have to wait 3-4 weeks to get my unit, which I think I can sweat out if it means I get what I want.


Cheers
