    Has anyone here purchased OS X Server with an EDU discount? I called Apple and they don't offer Server with EDU pricing. What the heck is that all about? Is this new?

    Both.. it doesn't show up on either for me. And I called them (twice) and they said they didn't offer an EDU discount.

    Thosw prices above are non-edu. That's the list price in the Apple Store (I looked yesterday).

    Well I get half off in the United States for OS X Server. I posted a screenshot too for what it's worth.

    $499 for 10-client and $999 for unlimited. My screenshot shows $249 and $499 for education.

    Maybe they figure students don't need to buy anything for a server and schools themselves are generally loaded enough to pay the full price. Just guessing.

    I made mention that you need to go to the Instituional Education Store (IT/Departmental) for your school to see OS X Server. It doesn't show up for individual education purchases. (Student/Faculty)
