    Its $3500 for 1 year of the Premier Membership.
    The only thing i can see most people being interested in are the 10 Developer Discounts on hardware, and maybe you developers out there, the 8 support incedents, the software seeding program, and the pass to WWDC.

    Here's the deal:
    One-year program membership with access to a PREMIER bundle of technical and marketing benefits, including:

    * Mac OS X and Xcode Tools on CD-ROM
    * Full Conference Pass to WWDC
    * One (1) ADC Premier Mailing Subscription
    * Eight (8) Technical Support Incidents
    * Ten (10) ADC Premier Hardware Discounts
    * ADC Software Seeding Program
    * ADC Compatibility Labs Access
    * ADC Premier Technical and Business Discounts

    I figure if 10 of us chip in $350, we can all get the discount on hardware. I personally wont use the support incidents nor the pass to the WWDC. We could draw straws for that or what ever.

    And to clarify, the hardware discount is on a full system. CPU, monitor, Apple Accessories (airport, ipod, isight, or any other hardware they release).

    What do yall think?

    BTW, im actually already a member, via the student program, but i just want the discount. :mamoru:

    One thing to mention, I dont know if the discount program is availble after the year of the membership, so i would suggest only those that think they will be able to utilize the purchase within the year, offer to buy in.

    $350/person isn't worth it since that's close to what you'd be saving on the hardware. The only way it would be worth it is if everybody who wanted in planned on buying fairly souped up systems (i.e. a *nice* G5 or powerbook, maybe you get $300-500 off) so that the discount amounted to something. You'd be better off w/student developer discount.

    ...that and the fact that just about everything else your paying for (the incidents, etc) is of no value to most of the people who post here.

    :dunno:

    Student discounts are better discounts then the 10% developer discounts.

    350 is steep, but true, it is for bigger systems i have in mind. a DP G5 and a cinema display would be an insane discount.
    That is definately worth it IMO.

    ADC Student members can easily get scholarships to WWDC as well.

    So you can spend $350 to save $400 off a PowerMac, or you can get $300 off with a student discount and spend nothing. :hs:

    well the premise being that you would be a developer seeing how you:
    (a) are signed up for one and
    (b) are trying to get a scholarship to a developer-focused event which is all about the new technologies in terms of how they impact developers, you not being selected is exactly how it should be.
