When did you do this, today? I called this afternoon and the rep told me that the pricing was 1060 for the m3 for businesses and you had to know an ibm employee and provide info to get the pricing at $913.
I don't really understand what is happening with this two level discounts. I called in and stated I wanted the 512 model in sliver, that it was 1212.75 with 80 off and that was it, got the link and was charged 1280.01 after tax.

What is the condition of the 2 you received?

The single USBc makes the computer practically useless for anything but web browsing and word processing. I have regretted purchasing this thing from the getgo. With all the dongles and cords hanging off of it like a ******** white octopus - it sort of defeats the purpose of having an ultraportable laptop. As if adding a second usbc would really have made the computer bigger. Really it's a nice screen, but so is an iPad. If you want a real computer this is nothing but a curiosity.

Has anyone returned theirs? Is it free shipping for returns? The website said no but others have previously said they returned without shipping costs?

Same situation here, if someone would be kind enough to PM their employee # that would be great! Looking to buy as a gift for my daughter. Thanks in advance.
Next year my daughter will be starting high school. I want to buy her good laptop. Will this be good enough for high school student?

the one i opened is absolutely mint. 4 power cycles. the one I'm returning/selling is unopened but I assume it will be same condition.

Add to that the fact that I can easily resell my mac for about 70-80% of what I paid for it 2-3 years later makes the mac a far better deal. I couldn't sell a used HP for 30% of it's initial value.

That's probably the best part. Apple products retain their value like crazy, so if you want to sell it later you'll actually be saving money compared to buying something else. If it dies, there's a lineup of repair shops willing to buy it for parts.
An ironic wise man once said, "Buy now, think later. The bubble will never burst."

I actually received my Macbook today even though the UPS tracking number didn't show an 'Out for Delivery' status.

The Macbook is in amazing condition, no scratches or blemishes whatsoever, looks practically brand new. With the packaging it came in, it looks like it came directly from Apple.

My battery cycle count is only 3 too.
