    might be the wrong section but since i know you guys - probably best place to ask.

    anyone use this for the hardware discount? Did you have to pay tax in your city? I just did it online (didnt buy it, just using their cart) and no tax was added but for reg. student discount they did.

    also, any bad experience w/ buying it from these ACD hardware discount than just regular apple site?

    I can't remember if I had to pay tax or not

    you pay tax on any online purchase with apple, since they have stores in all 50 states it sort of makes it a necessity

    if you have a .gov job you can get a better discount than student, if you go through the student portal you can get a good discount as well

    i'm not sure if you know which discount i'm talking about.

    basically if you become a hardware developer you can get a 1 time discount on their hardware which is better discount then their "regular discounts"

    BUT the catch is - you have to sign up for the program. since i'm a student it'll cost me $99.
