    go to your local community college
    sign up
    get ID card
    drop before paying
    take ID card to Apple and enjoy $200 off and discounted apple care

    College/University student discount is the way to go. I am planning on buying a MBP in the fall as well hopefully

    Buy it online and say that you go to school. When I ordered my laptop, they didn't ask for a college ID or anything. They pretty much just take your word for it

    When I bought my other laptop there, they asked me what college I went to, and that was it. They didn't ask for ID

    (I buy a lot of laptops I guess)

    when i bought my macbook, they wanted to know the college and the zip code for the college. i had no idea what the zip code was

    if you buy online, they don't check anything, just lie

    wait till the end of summer so you can get a free ipod

    They asked me the same, and asked for ID. I looked for "it" and couldn't find "it". They gave me discount anyway..

    However I have a friend or two that didn't get the discount because they didn't ahve an ID.

    I can get a student discount no problem, I'm going to college.

    I'm hoping for an Apple Employee hook up like i used to have :x:

    I've been using my student discount to purchase stuff through Apple, even though I haven't been a student for years.

    Nobody seems to check on this stuff. :dunno:

    The employee discount for friends is the same as the education discount. Unless they don't use their single 25% discount on a machine for themselves, then I guess they could do it
