    Don't quite know where the best place to put this is, so I went with here, though maybe buying guides the best. Whatever.
    Anyways, I need to get some software, FCE and PS, but I don't wanna wait to ship it from the apple store. So, does anyone know if I go to an actual retail store, will they ahve the educational licensed version of Final Cut express, or am I going to have to purchase offline?

    If you can prove your educational status, I believe you can get the discount in the store. Just take a valid ID with you. There's no difference in the software, they'll just reduce the price for you.

    The brick-and-mortar Apple stores do not sell software at EDU prices. But you may be able to get it somewhere else...the computer store of a local university might be a good bet.

    University stores sometimes have the software cheaper than Apple's EDU prices.

    Apple Stores do not offer educational discounts on software. For pro-apps, the software is not exactly the same either. The splash screen(s) say "Educational Version" on them. Other than that they are the same though...
