Really great price if you stack the $100 Off College Student coupon. Would make a great Back to School item or as a gift. Offer valid only for July 25, 2016 or while supplies last - Discombobulated

This model is a year old and will likely be refreshed in the next several months!

Student coupons can be used once online and once in the store, the online code and the barcode works irrespective of the other being used already.

Just use your regular .com email address,no need to be a student

I got an open box last week when the price was about the same. I did not get iLife/iWork with it since it had already been "registered" by the first buyer. Plus a month of the warranty had been used up. At $699.99 for a brand new one, it's harder to justify the current open box price of $604.

Pluses of this computer are:

1) the 1440x900 resolution (vs. 1280x800 for the Retina 13" Macbook Pro and 1152 x 720 for the 12" Macbook after accounting for pixel doubling)

2) super long battery life compared to other full function laptops (10-12hrs+)

3) Super fast PCI-e SSD

4) Ability to hook up to 4K external display

5) very thin and lightweight - the tapered front makes it seem even smaller and lighter than it is

Minuses:

1) Non Retina Screen (glossy at that)

2) Relatively slow processor (which is the tradeoff for long battery life)

3) small 128GB SSD

I was disappointed that mine had the LG display rather than the sharper Samsung panel. You'll need to calibrate the LG screen to make it sharper. Use this guide: http://theultralinx.com/2013/03/m...ck-screen/

That display profile worked better than I could do on my own. Once you install the profile, it will be listed along with the other preset profiles as "Color LCD" with a creation date of 6/16/10.

Other things I did to make the screen sharper were to "Increase Contrast" and "Reduce Transparency" in the Accessibility preference panel. I also replaced the System Font with Lucida Grande.

P.S. I am a "Windows" person when it comes to desktops but I've been using Mac laptops for years as I just like the look and feel of them. However, I hate paying the steep prices on them which is why I only buy them when they are on super sales like this Smilie
Be careful using the $100 of coupon on online orders for open box in store pickups. I ordered one a few days ago and the order was immediately canceled and it won't let me redeem the coupon again.

Should be 14 days minimum, which is the return period. If you have upper tier memberships (e.g., elite, etc), then it'll be 30 or 45 days. Good luck!

And yet 90% of these threads degenerate into begging for coupons
