I myself have used the ADC discount to purchase a new Ghz powerbook. For students, there is a membership fee of $100. That is all!!! Actually, that fee is well worth the cost to get the discount, as well as all the free developer software and OS upgrades as well. Elegibility is an issue though. You have to qualify, take chances, etc...to be able to get the discount.

P.S.-Once you use the discount, you can't use it again...It's a one/lifetime sort of thing, so make sure you get a really good system!!!

Are you taking any developement classes at your college?...or do they give the discount to every ADC student member?
Thanks!

What type of OS upgrades and other frills come along? I was about to join but realized it costs $100 and couldn't justify it. I'm not about to buy a new mac (I'll think about joining before I do though), and $100 is a lot of money to a poor person like me.

I don't think you need to take any of those classes. It could depend on your major. I am not positive on the requirements when they review your case however. The software that you get in the ADC package is a full version of Jaguar, developer tools, free code, free quicktime seminars, etc...I think its well worth the $100, especially if you need an extra copy of OSX.

What do you mean by "waiting for my return"?

I assume he is out of town, and will be returning home shortly.

I wonder if taking Audio classes or Film classes (heavily mac based) would get me that kind of discount.....

I am a US citizen and my parents live in the states, but I go to Trinity College in Dublin. Also i'm not allowed to take any courses outside my major, business, and therefore had no developer classes. I had no trouble using the ADC student discount they only require that you fax them a letter from your college stating that you are enrolled and taking classes and a copy of your student i.d.............and voila .......new ti superdrive 1Ghz 1GB $2439 and a new 10gig iPod $319. Money baby!!!

I remember reading about someone who did that, and when they found out he did not have any developer classes they charged the difference to his credit card. If more people say its possible, I just may try it.
