    I plan to get Tiger with a student discount, I wanted to know if the $69 price is for a stripped down version or am I getting the real deal with everything?

    It's the real deal. It's just Apple being friendly to us learny types. ;)

    yep, AFAIK, apple doesn't water-down any of the edu discount stuff.

    With applications like Final Cut Pro, the educational version may not qualify for later upgrades, but past experience shows that a Mac OS X version for students is a discount with no strings attached.

    Another question about educational discounts

    Define student.

    I'm not trying to be funny, but I am curious about who Apple has in mind when they use the word "student". Can a parent purchase Apple products with an educational discount for his/her 6th grader, or does Apple intend this discount for college students? Does the purchaser have to be the student?

    For K-12 I believe it is employees (teachers, school staff) but not students, while for colleges and universities it's employees AND students.

    Does the discount apply to multiple copies of Tiger if you purchase more than one, or is it for one copy only?

    Qualifying purchases per academic school year:
    -one computer per year
    -one printer per year
    -two displays
    -two softwares


    So to the apple store website, you'll find all the info you need.

    Software - Discount only available online.
    Hardware - Discount available in a brick-and-mortar store and online.

    Apple only offers the education discount on hardware in the stores, if you want education discount on software, you'll have to order online.

    edit: dang, got beat to it by a very violent John Travolta from Pulp Fiction. He must have broke my concentration or something.

    I would also check if you have an educational reseller nearby. The bookstore by campus here is selling Tiger for $15 to students. Needless to say I am excited! :D :D

    I'm pretty sure you can only get hardware discounts in the store. You need to order it online.

    Edit: Sorry, I guess I didn't realized there were more pages in the thread and this was already answered. :eek:

    Although you get the same software, you get a differenct box. At least a different licence anyway. The stores just don't carry it.

    Wow, that is a great deal. I went to the computer store at FSU today and they said they are still working out the pricing with Apple. Panther was $29 and I would be more than happy to pay that for Tiger. But $15, that would be even better. Can you purchase more than one copy at that price?? And it is the full retail version, right?? Not some OEM crap??

    Its not true about edu prices on software only being online. On campus at UMaine our computer store (the computer connection) is a licensed apple dealer and they sell all software/hardware to students at the student price. you just have to have your UMaine ID card in hand.

    I was able to get student discount on software in apple store (OS X) but maybe because it is the OS that doesn't count :/

    but i will say this to warn you, i believe that if you get education version of the pro apps, you CANNOT use them to earn money. Or it breaks your education purchase.

    but if i am wrong someone please correct me.

    Thats because its at a school. They may only sell education products. You can't walk go into you local apple store in a mall and get a student discount.

    Yeah, it is the full version. I don't think it comes with the standard packaging, but the disc is exactly the same. I know we had Panther for $15 as well. If you had it for $29, I would guess you will get Tiger for that price. I think you are limited to one copy, but that is all I need. I have some friends that don't have Apple computers that are buying it for their friends at other schools.

    Actually, that's wrong. You can get the Education Discount on hardware in both stores AND online. Although, in both cases it must be direct from Apple.
