Yesterday I ordered a stock iBook with 80GB HD and 4G iPod mini from the UK Edu Store over the phone. I had previously priced the stuff on the internet Edu store and this was the breakdown: iPod=£128.08 (inc VAT) and iBook=£722.86 (inc VAT) giving a total of £850.94. On the phone the nice man gave me the following breakdown: iPod=£109.00 (excl VAT) and iBook=£575.72 (excl VAT), giving a total of £804.55 (inc VAT), subenquently confirmed by the emailed invoice. That's a saving of about £45! Why the discrepancy? I only originally phoned the Apple Store to check eligibility for the Student Union offer. I didn't want to ask the sales rep incase he realised he had made a mistake. So what's the deal? Is the online Apple Edu Store more expensive?
