This might be slightly YMMV because the price was 100 dollars cheaper in store vs online.

The 256GB i5 was $1099 in store (shows $1199 online). I was able to combine trade in with student discount bringing the price to $895 + tax. Math in order discounts are applied: 1099-50 [trade in coupon] => 1049 x.90 [for 10% student] => 945 - 50 [trade in gift card] = $895+tax

Edit: I originally posted from mobile in a hurry so I'm trying to clean it up. I'm working from my new surface pro right now :-)

Called a store in Chicago area but said 1199. Did it scan at 1099 or the tag also showed 1099?

The tag said 1099 on the side for other options. I actually looked for the date printed and it said 11 March. I didn't ask* about it and it just rang up 1099.

I did ask about combining trade in with student before I traded in my old laptop. Customer service didn't think it would be a problem and I had no issues.

*corrected autocorrect typo

Mover's coupon restrictions say no computers/tablets - And this still works? I'm very interested in getting one - just need to make sure I can get my hand on a mover's coupon if it will work.

I did the same thing yesterday, And the fork there kindly scanned all my coupons to see how that works. I got one tradein coupon, one student coupon and one movers coupon to purchase one pro4. Plus $150 tradein gift card (traded three of my old laptops). I got the i5 256 version for 700 pretax ($1099-50-105-95-150 = 700).

I think for most things the 4 gigs of ram will be fine. I'd like to use mine for light gaming and possibly some math software for school so the 8 gigs of ram will help with that.

You are also doubling SSD to 256GB so I think it's worth the extra 180. You can't upgrade later in this form factor other than adding micro SD.
