The student discount is year-round and for all computers instantly. It'll be there.

How do you prove your a student? Do you have to be taking a full 12 units at College or will one class do (GF goes currently)?

You have to provide NO proof if you order online. If you go to a store, they'd probably ask you for your ID. I doubt any more than that.

You prove you're a student by being one. You don't cheat the system.

Agree with Tallest Skil: please don't abuse the educational discount.

@ Apple store: Student ID with photo + Valid DL or state ID (to make sure you don't purchase more than 1 computer a year).

If you buy the computer from your student store you may get 200-400 off your macbook/pro purchase sometimes (i know california public universities do this).

Just a heads up, there is a chance that the stores won't have them on the day that they are released, so you might want to double check that the store has them before you go.

Does anyone know if the 99 rebate on the ipod nano still applies? Or does this offer only apply to the current MB?

I hope theirs a discount i wanna use it. Apple should have released the laptops before school started they would have gotten alot more people.

I really don't think it mattered. A lot of people jumped on the free iPod.

Apple did just fine. They do the back-to-school promo every year to clear out stock for the new line.

I'm sure they would have covered all the angles with the back to school special regarding releasing a new macbook.

Call me ignorant, but is it a flat $100 off for notebooks?

If so, and that $800 price point for a model is true, I'm definately in for a $700 macbook asap.

no. It's scaled based on price. So the $800 mb could easily only have a $50 off deal.

Yeah, back in the day even ipods got the student discount,
the 1gb shuffle was 139 instead of 149, but the 20 gb ipod was 279 instead of 300, so you got a bigger discount off each one.
Then it got abused so they took it away. Thats why people need to stop abusing the system **cough** guy above **cough**

That's provided the new lowered prices have an education discount available at all. It could be that an $800 Macbook will be as low as they'll go and no further discounts apply. Considering the old educ price was $999 base plus upgrades I'll take $800 flat over the old way.

The UK offer is for a 95 rebate against an iPod, and it runs until 31st October.

The terms state that "All Macintosh computers and the Configure-to-Order versions of these products are eligible, except for Mac mini, Apple TV and iPhone".

So long as Apple don't withdraw the offer tomorrow, it should still be OK. Here's hoping they don't change it!

One extra way of saving money - if you buy it from the Apple Store via www.quidco.com you get 6% cashback in addition to the student discount and the iPod rebate !

Not really. I mean for MacBooks it has been $100 off; however for Mac Minis (priced at ~$780), the discount is only $50, so if the new MacBook is ~$800, then expect the discount to be lower.

You're local Apple Store will NOT have them when you get out of school.

Nobody knows when they are going to be released -- they will be ANNOUNCED tomorrow but it could be an hour, day, week(s) until they actually come out. If you want to buy it tomorrow your best bet is wait and see the announcement or just plan on ordering it from the Apple online store.

Even the "old" white MacBook is still $950,...
Why didn't they at least make it $899 - would look much better with the "8" instead a "9". :(

I'll try to use that logic the next time I'm bartering for something on the marketplace here.
