Looking forward to Christmas hope Santa delivers on time!

I've heard of audits rarely being done after the fact. Who knows for sure?

Anyone can place an order on the edu store, but generally they will contact you for verification of your status. I've had to send them a copy of my university ID in the past. They send an email asking for verification - can't remember if they say they'll cancel the order or just charge you the regular price if you can't provide verification. However, it's entirely possible that they'll process the order without verifying, but that hasn't been my experience.

I have just been in store and purchased the base 21" model..!! It is more than adequate for me needs..

I am a virgin Apple Mac user.. Apple staff set it all up and talked through how to use it.. They spent an hour with me going through it answering all my questions and explaining customer care...!!!

Microsoft and manufacturers of windows based systems u can learn a lot from apple..!!!

Good bye Microsoft I'm not sorry to see u go...!!!!
