MacBook Air 11" with student discount = $949

Please let me know where I can buy a mid-range Windows laptop for minus $50, I'll take ten!

apple has bought up so much production capacity in china, that other manufacturers are struggling to match their prices, particularly in the "ultrabook" range.

i agree that a brand-new 15" macbook pro is way overkill for 90% of students. but a second-hand macbook air is pretty hard to beat...
