just in case anyone here is a student I wanted to let you know of a great deal apple are doing.

I got the new mac 2.4 from regent street branch yesterday morning and upon producing my student card I got 168 off and got an iPod nano 109 but once I send in the receipt I get 95 back and the same with the printer, you get a full refund on the printer.

Point is if you know a student get them to come with you because you will save a bundle.

They also offered me apple care for 3 years for around 40 and mobile me for 44.

Sweet, thanks

Well my miss' is a student, so how do i go about getting the discount.

Should I just send her in with my debit card..... or will they give me the discount if I buy it with her with me?

Even better, use Quidco aswell (www.quidco.com) and get all of those discounts, plus another 60 off. That's what I've done. Whoop whoop!

Thats sounds good...

So if I were to order it does everything have to be in the students name (my friend) or can I order it all in my name...

Is definately a good saving...

You have to physically cut holes in both the iPod nano cardboard and MacBook boxes. I'm gonna do my MacBook today and hope that the box still stays in one piece!

I was planmning on selling the Nano and Printer, could you no longer say they are new if you had to damage them or is it getting a sticker off the packaging?

Is this for the MacBook? On the website they offer it at 157.45 with student discount.

You have to cut it out of the packaging, but I would have said you can still claim it is new.

Thats a lot of rebate. I didn't think you could use both the student discount, the printer and iPod discount at the same time... This is so nice... :D

Can you please tell us the total price of everything you paid for and what you got with it. A breakdown will be helpful with specs for your Mac and nano.

Thanks

So you got 168 pounds off.

But in the US they are getting the Macbook way cheaper: $1299. Thats about 700-800 pounds depending on exchange rate.

But here in the UK and all other countires around the world except US, we are paying 1150+ pounds for Macbook thats a wooping 300 pound differnce.

Which is really unfair.

You could go all the way to US flight- pay ticket cost around 270 pounds get a macbook come back and still save money.

I myself just grabbed the 2.4ghz MacBook pro and just grabbed the cheapest free printer. the iPod nano would have been nice - I wish I knew I was getting this a few days ago. Anyways, anyone know if there's better bang for buck I could get with the printer? I may have time to change the order before it ships.
