Wouldn't hold my breath waiting for an SP3 price drop until the SP4 comes out. Seems this is a popular unit.
Until Sept 6th you can still get $150 off for a student discount and another $100 off with a "Mover's Coupon" from the post office. That's $250 off right there. I got my SP3 15 128 for $750. Taking some online classes and was able to finagle a .edu email address.
certainly is. Saw the SP2 popping up everywhere in my uni, and saw a few SP3's already on monday! ( it was last thursday in AUS)
