    just go to the apple store. Its your best bet especially if something goes wrong with it. Make sure you get apple care as well. My macbookpro has gotten over3000 dollars worth of repair on it over the last 2 and half years.

    A not so bad idea is looking on Craigslist for ones w/ Applecare. You can look up that specific laptop on the Apple website and see if it qualifiies forApplecare (always good to check if you're buying one from someone you don't know). This can save you a good amount of $$.

    Apple store use your school discount.. If you're not in school, order off Apple.com and choose any school, you don't have to verify when you orderonline. The discount is $100, or you can order a refurbished one off of Apple.com, it's just as good, cheaper, and you still get the same warranty and youcan get AppleCare.
