That is part of the bad part of Apple's business model. They make a superior product, but there is no competition. No motivation to give you a better price. If you buy it from the Apple store it is the same as buying on-line.

The manager in menlo park mall NJ told me to see him when i was ready as he would offer something off - dont have any idea how much they are empowered / willing to offer so i can negotiate from a position of knowledge. Anybody know what the employee discount is?

I believe store managers *do* have some ability to offer discounts or incentives.

I'd pay a visit, ready to deal.

Sometimes CompUSA have a little more room for negotiation (maybe discounted Applecare - a must for the Macbook). Wouldn't hurt to do a quote and comparison with your Apple sales rep in CompUSA and their business sales unit.
