hello everyone. i'm buying my first mac soon and was hoping i could get some good advice from some mac veterans. i actually posted a similar question a few days ago but didn't get much response (probably because i posted in the middle of someone else's thread -- my mistake). so i figured i'd try it again. 1. i work full-time and take programming classes at night at a local community college. do i qualify to take advantage of the apple educational discount even though i'm not a full-time student? 2. i'm planning on getting some additional options added when i purchase my new g5, such as an upgraded graphics card, bluetooth, and airport extreme. with this in mind, do you recommend buying through apple's website or calling apple to place my order with a real person? thanks in advance for any help you can provide. ps. thanks, sambo, for your reply to my earlier post.
