I can get student discount on Mac hardware. 10% on the MBP.

Repairs here will be roughly 1/2 - 2/3 that price.

Thinking about upgrading my old 13 MBP. Is the keyboard much better on the new ones? Was waiting for a trip to Cali to buy but that won’t be happening any time soon

I replaced my 2011 air(briefly had a shitty butterfly MBP) and the difference is as you'd expect ridiculous.
