    My sis goes to ASU and I'm going to get my macbook pro thru her ID, should I just have her and my dad go to the store or should I order it online? or am I missing something.

    Wow, they are very trustworthy. Another reason why apple is the shit. So say I go in with my dad and he says that it's a birthday present for his daughter that goes to asu, this shouldn't be a problem with her not being there in person right?

    Apple store always checks my student ID against my drivers license.

    Over here (not sure about US) education discount varies from one institution to another, or so I was told. Mine came to around 15% discount which basically paid for my upgrades and BT peripherals :bigthumb: I've left Uni now, but my Mums gone back :run: So I've got another two years of discount to be had.
