    I used my educational discount on my iMac this year. Can I still use my educational discount? I herd that I can only buy one computer per year.

    Sorry. Once a year. You can try it online, get on the education store, and you could sneak by. Couple of my friends did it and succeed. Not saying this is a 100% success rate option, but you can try.

    Macbook air Student discount is absolutely pathetic. You get 50 dollars off. I recommend buying from other retailers because they are cheaper.

    I would recommend to catch one on the refurb site as they are popping up in all configurations. And you will save alot more than the edu discount!

    Actually, Yes you can.
    The education discount will allow you to purchase 1 desktop and 1 notebook a year. Besides they don't have a database with the names of people who have already used their discount.

    Also, when did you purchase it? I think Apple classifies a school year as July 1st - June 30th. Therefore you could buy 2 of the same category in the same week and it would be considered two different years.

    Microcenter matches educational discount. ($50 off) and MacMall has them for $965, and you pay no tax or shipping.
