hey, i just ordered my first mac, a 17" Powerbook w/ 1gb of ram. right now it says 3-5 days till it ships out, i hope it doesn't get pushed back like i hear happens alot. ANYWAY, I selected my college on apple.com then went to it's store and ordered the PB. I got the discounted price and everything, but it never mentioned anything about asking for like proof I'm actually a student. I thought I read their website like last summer and it saying something about how they wait till you send them prove your a student before they'll ship it out to you, do they still do that, or will they just send it to me when it's ready, or what??
