All my years of using Amazon, feeding my buying habits into their recommendation engine… well I knew the payoff would happen someday and here we are.

While preordering my 15″ MacBook Pro (hereto referred to as “the new hotness”) Amazon melted my face with a legendary buying tip:

First, I love the discount.  When spending nearly $4000, I can rest easy knowing that I’m saving 0.003%

Second, I have to applaud Amazon for suggesting this pairing.  I’ve been concerned that my new notebook might be lonely and this the perfect solution.

Third and finally, I really have to question this pairing.  A MacBook and a MacBook Pro?  Those of us who buy our notebooks in pairs would opt for the Pro and the Air, not the Pro and basic MacBook.  It’s just common sense.

    Pretty hilarious. :-D

    …though I hate to tell you that you might have missed a deal. You would have saved 0.3%, not 0.003%. I hope I didn’t ruin your holiday.
