    I'm browsing Apple's site reading about the student discount. I choose a local community college, pick a 15" powerbook, upgrade the vram and HD space and it's STILL under the base powerbook price. :eek3:

    I click checkout and it goes to the address screen. Does this mean I'll get the discount or does Apple make sure I'm a student?

    Good question.. :dunno: I heard that @ the apple store, they don't even check your ID. As a matter of fact, when I bought Tiger the other week, the bitch @ the register didn't even ask for ID :eek5:

    I wanted to ask you if I could buy from you @ a cheaper rate, but I didn't get a chance to :o

    If it were this easy I'm sure everyone would have a Mac.

    I used to go to the local community college. I know that your student ID number is your SSN. When I order it in the next couple weeks I'll try it and see what happens. Can't hurt.

    How do you sign up for ADC?

    not all schools have this. community colleges don't give out email addresses (at least the one I went to didn't). honestly, I don't think they can check, especially if everything is done online.

    you guys suck. Just pay the price that you're supposed to pay. student discounts is a service for students.

    I know for the ADC Student Membership I actually had to fax in a copy of my ID and class schedule for next semester to become activated.
