Was looking for a Chromebook and this was the best deal I could find. It requires a student or faculty discount, but I'm pretty sure any .edu email will work. I had to pay tax, but I'm not sure that will be everywhere.
Also, mine said backordered and will be processed within 7-10 business days yesterday (when I ordered), but it shipped out last night.
hope it helps,
ps, they have other chromebooks heavily discounted as well.
