hey, just thought i'd let everyone know ASAP about this...

i'm a student at Florida State University and i just preordered Panther from our computer store on campus for $39!!! in the box and everything, they're not cheaping out here! the URL so you can see is http://computerstore.fsu.edu

it's a special pricing going on, but you have to preorder before 8pm tonight, oct. 24.

Other universities might be doing this too, so make sure you check it out!!!

with tax and everything it was like $45.88 or something.

hope this helps!

Are you sure they ship outside campus and stuff?

If you look at the normal Apple store online, $39/each is the price they give for buying a 1000+ set of licenses. FSU must have just purchased a buttload of them at that price and is passing the savings on to their students. Very nice of them. UCF isn't doing the same unfortunately.

I didn't see anything about Mac OS X at Valencia CC in Orlando yesterday. The last thing I saw was a 10.1 box at the beginning of summer 2003. :D They did have plenty of boxes of WinXP Pro. Since the whole Graphic Design department runs Macs, you'd think things would be a bit more balanced.

Obviously, central Floriduh is out of the loop, as usual. :D

the best way to get university pricing for your school is via the apple web site...

http://store.apple.com/Catalog/US/Images/routingpage.html

or if that doesn't work, store.apple.com and click on "education" under interests in the left hand column...
