Good deal with .edu discount... too bad RAM isn't user upgradeable. I'd want 8GB to future proof it.

For what purpose do you need 8GB of ram for in a netbook?

maybe install windows ?

Yeah, but a MacBook PRO is MUCH thicker.

This deal is for an Air.

My answer (one of many possible): to run VMs. If you need to have a Windows VM or a development VM or two, 4GB is tight. Games also like RAM.

Also, this isn't a netbook. It's a fully usable computer. It just happens to be portable.

+ $25 back with #AmexSync https://sync.americanexpress.com/ + $14 CashBack + credit card rewards + reward zone!

Thanks, OP!

BB's 3-yr accidental warranty is $450; SqTrade is 1/2 this @ 225.
Now the eternal questions - how do I get an .edu email account?

If you want to get this I can give you my coupon since I'm not going to buy it.

Is there a special from Amex that give the $25 credit back? I usually received this from my Twitter account but haven't seen anything for Best Buy purchase.

Lucky kids.... I was never spoiled as a child. I am jealous.

Go back to school! Nothing more precious than a good education

Still a bit too much for me but its a laptop I really want.

Bought one yesterday, seems they are sold out at most stores. Sadly I did not pay attention and the cart had added Webroot security for $29.99 that cannot be returned. Shame on Best Buy for adding it to cart instead of recommending. Did chat with their customer service, they could not do anything about it, called and they could not do anything about it but said that they will escalate internally. Called Credit card company and now will have to either loose $32 and change with Tax or continue battling by disputing the charge. Shame on Best Buy.

The only thing more advanced is the retina display and extra 4 gigs of memory, the processor in the Air is the new Haswell that is equal to or even better than the last gen processor in the pro. Until the new pros come out with the newer processor the only reason to get a pro is for the retina display, right now the Air is the way to go.

Good Deal here. Fortunately for me I have a Macbook Air already

Yes, there was, but if you didn't already request it, its over for you. There's a thread on it, probably in expired deals.
