    #1 longer from the online store but from an Apple shop tomorrow! woo

    Getting a macbook with UK higher education discount and iPod rebate. Any benefits from gettin it online than a store?

    Plus, what is the return policy like on store purcashes? Is there a 14 days "this product is substandard and i want a full refund now" policy?

    Nice choice!

    Do you plan to use the NUS education discount or just the standard? Just by chance you don't already know, the NUS discount is much higher and also allows you to get a free extended warrantee, (3 years instead of 2).

    I'm not sure if you can use NUS cards in-store though, but don't qoute me on that.

    Yup planning on the higher education discount, not the standard education discount. The one that gives 14% off on the macbook.

    Problem - i asked BullRing store they said they dont do it - this was in person ages ago. Now today, i called them but they wudnt answer. So i called London, Manchester and Sheffield and asked them all if they do the proper higher education discount and they all said yes - and that bullring will do it too. So taking a trip to birmingham tomorrow!
